Happy birthday MP3 - 10 years old!

Posted on Thursday, July 14 2005 @ 16:08:46 CEST by


Wow things go fast as today it is exactly ten years ago that the researchers at Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS decided to call their new audio coding technology ".mp3".
Date: Fri, 14 Jul 1995 12:29:49 +0200
Subject: Layer3 file extension: .mp3

Hi all,
this is the overwhelming result of our poll:
everyone voted for .mp3 as extension for ISO MPEG Audio Layer 3!
As a consequence, everyone please mind that for WWW pages, shareware,
demos, and so on, the .bit extension is not to be used anymore.
There is a reason for that, believe me :-)
Jürgen Zeller (translated from German)
This naming can be seen as the conclusion of years of research and development in a team of up to 40 engineers. The format‘s international standardization in 1992 ensured worldwide compatibility – this fact and the public MP3 source code guarantee that billions of existing MP3 files can still be played by generations of audiophiles to come.

In 1992 MP3 was in fact so far ahead of its times, that the industry considered the technology far too complex for practical application. It turned out, however, that its development was the bottom line advancement in audio coding – no other coding method so far could uncrown MP3 as the standard for digital music on the computer and on the Internet.
