MP3 vs M4A

July 1, 2009 § Leave a comment

M4A stands for MPEG 4 Audio. MP4 has better quality and smaller file size than MP3. Unlike MP3, M4A does not require any licenses or payments to stream and distribute content. MP3 requires you to pay royalities on content you distribute in MP3 format.

M4A files tend to sound much better than MP3 files encoded at the same bitrate.
