Downloading and Playing CD-Quality Music (MP3 Files)

Although most audio and video you can get online is pretty small and scratchy, one file format online supplies top-quality sound: MP3. MP3 files, which have the filename extension .MP3, are downloadable files containing CD-quality music or other high-quality audio.

Getting MP3 Files

Downloading MP3 files is like downloading any other type of file; you typically click a link in a Web page and then wait for the file to download to your computer. After the file is on your computer, you can play it anytime, even offline. A typical MP3 file containing one pop song is between 3MB and 4MB; over a 56K connection, it typically takes no more than about 15 minutes to get the file.
