|Description||🔵 MPEG-1 (Moving Picture Experts Group file extension) is a standard for lossy compression of audio and video. It is created to compress VHS-quality raw digital video and CD audio down to 1.5 Mbit/s without excessive quality loss, making video CDs, digital cable/satellite TV, and digital audio broadcasting possible. It is one of the most popular and widely compatible video/audio formats in the world.|
|Technical details||🔵 MPEG-1 is made to code video and related audio for storage of about 1.5 Mbits/s, which enables encoding to a CD or low-quality DVD. MPEG -2 was designed for high-quality television. MPEG-3, which was made for higher resolution in HDTV, was afterward combined with MPEG-2 as they are very similar. MPEG-4 is used for graphical content for computers, and compression and coding are much more efficient.|

Which other formats M4A can be converted into and why
M4A files may be a strong competitor to the MP3 file formats. Yet, this type of digital audio file format has many disadvantages, such as appearing as a data file (instead of a media or document), and low compatibility with some devices.

One major reason why you might need to convert your M4A file is because it is a file extension, which means that only specific applications can open it. MP3 is supported by almost any device.
