Information about RA and MP3 file formats
|Full name||Real Audio File||MP3 - MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III|
|MIME type||audio/vnd.rn-realaudio||audio/mpeg, audio/MPA, audio/mpa-robust|
|Developed by||RealNetworks||Fraunhofer Institute|
|Type of format||Digital audio|
|Description||RA file format was developed by RealNetworks. This is an audio format that makes use of various audio codecs. Those codecs range from the high fidelity type that is for music, and can also go all the way down to low-bitrate formats. The low-bitrate formats are commonly used for older dialup modems. RA format is also one that allows audio to be streamed online. However, the use of RA for online streaming has declined in recent years as other technologies have been developed.||MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III, more commonly referred to as MP3, is an audio coding format for digital audio which uses a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for consumer audio streaming or storage, as well as a de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on most digital audio players.|
|Technical details||The use of lossy compression is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio. An MP3 file that is created using the setting of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is about 1/11 the size of the CD file created from the original audio source.|
