It is important to distinguish between the audio coding format, the container containing the raw audio data, and an audio codec.
A code performs the encoding and decoding of the raw audio data while this encoded data is (usually) stored in a container file. Although most audio file formats support only one type of audio coding data (created with an audio coder), a multimedia container format (as Matroska or AVI) may support multiple types of audio and video data.
There are varieties of audio file extensions namely MP3, AAC (Advanced Audio Coding), FLAC(Free lossless audio Codec), ALAC (Apple’s lossless audio Codec), WAF(Waveform Audio File), DSD(Direct Stream Digital), PCM (Pulse Code Modulation).To be updated with more facts stay connected with www.engineersconnect.com
