Details of M4A and MP3 file format

Format M4A MP3
Short Name M4A MP3
Full Name MPEG-4 Audio File MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III
Category Audio file Audio file
Pros Although the M4A file is compressed, the quality remains unchanged. The fact that M4A audio files are not protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) means they can be modified and transmitted more freely. Accepted extensively by all. Practically all hardware audio players and gadgets support it. Very high rates of compression offered. Can be decoded pretty fast, and in a more sophisticated manner. An ISO standard that is part of the MPEG specifications. Anyone can put their own version together with the available demo sources. The licensing requiremnets are relaxed. It provides support to multichannel files.
Cons M4A is a file format that is well-known in Apple's iTunes, iPod, and other devices. However, as compared to MP3 files, M4A audio playback is problematic due to its lack of compatibility with other devices. Performance and efficiency are lower than current codecs. The maximum bitrate (320kbps) isn't always enough.There are no multichannel implementations available yet. Incompatible with high-definition audio (sampling rates higher than 48kHz). Causes increase in music piracy due to greater availability and ease of use.
Created by Apple Moving Picture Experts Group
Created in 2004 1987
Basic information An M4A file is an MPEG-4 audio file that has been encoded with either the Advanced Audio Coding (AAC) or Apple Lossless Audio Codec (ALAC). It may hold a variety of audio files, including songs, podcasts, and audiobooks. An MP3 File format is a compressed audio file that uses "Layer 3" audio compression. It was produced by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) (MP3). Audio recordings, podcasts, soundtracks, sermons, audiobooks, lectures, etc are all widely stored as MP3 files.
Detailed information MPEG-4 is a multimedia container format for audio and video data that is compressed. .MP4 files, which store audio and video data, use this format. The.m4a suffix, which stands for "MPEG-4 Audio," was created since M4A files exclusively carry audio data. This naming change made it easier to tell the difference between MPEG-4 video and MPEG-4 audio-only files. There is a lossy compression option, like with other audio file types, and it is achieved using AAC encoding. The Apple Lossless format allows for lossless compression, which is not achievable with other audio formats. MPEG released the MP3 format in 1993, after developing it in the early 1990s. It could condense audio to a fraction of the size of other common audio file types at the time (about 1/10 the size of an uncompressed.WAV or.AIF file). So, this format quickly became the standard for storing music and rose above the other existing ones. At that time, computers provided very less storage space. So, the deveopment of the MP3 format was a very critical event. Currently, MP3 is the most used audio file format. The file size of a multimedia file can be greatly decreased with MPEG compression, with minimal detectable loss in quality. This improves the efficiency of file transfers over the Internet. In the 1990s and 2000s, MP3 technology revolutionized the concept of recorded music streaming by allowing people to more simply and quickly download music from the internet.
