What is a mp2 file?

MPEG 1 Audio Layer 2 (MP2) is a lossy compression format for audio files, similar to MP3 files. However, MP2 files use time domain compression, while MP3 file compression takes place in the frequency domain. Parts of a recording that are not audible to humans are removed during compression. Most PAL region (most of Europe, East and Southern Africa and Asia) DVD players have MP2 decoding capability. MP2 is the default audio format for Multimedia Home Platform, VCD, HDV camcorders and some DVD recorders. MP3 files have largely replaced the MP2 file type, but it is still widely used for internal audio storage and recording in the radio industry.
