Glossary:

 

Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE, or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music.Apple Lossless data is stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension .m4a. It is not a variant of AAC (which is a lossy format), but a distinct lossless format that uses linear prediction similar to other lossless codecs such as FLAC and Shorten.All current iPod players can play Apple Lossless-encoded files. It does not use any digital rights management (DRM) scheme, but by the nature of the container, it is thought that DRM could be applied to ALAC much the same way it can with other files in QuickTime containers.

 

MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer 3 (or III),[4] more commonly referred to as MP3, is a patented digital audio encoding format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players.
