Most modern Web browsers will play MP3 files without the need for any special players. In addition MP3 files can be downloaded and imported into sites like iTunes.
The sound recordings are digitized using MPEG 2, Layer 3 (MP3)
format. MP3 offers high quality sound that comes close to the quality
of WaveForm at greatly reduced file size. MP3 files download much
faster than .wav files. Many popular audio players can play MP3 files.
Note: Some audio players that are not specifically designed
to play MP3 files do not display the bibliographic information that
resides in the ID3 v.2 tag of the .mp3 file.
