History of mp3 Player Introduction of mp3 player
MP3 stands for MPEG Audio Layer III and it is a standard for audio compression that makes any music file smaller with little or no loss of sound quality. MP3 is part of MPEG, an acronym for Motion Pictures Expert Group, a family of standards for displaying video and audio using lossy compression. Standards set by the Industry Standards Organization or ISO, beginning in 1992 with the MPEG-1 standard. MPEG-1 is a video compression standard with low bandwidth. The high bandwidth audio and video compression standard of MPEG-2 followed and was good enough to use with DVD technology. MPEG Layer III or MP3 involves only audio compression. Creator of the mp3 players
In the early 1990s, Frauenhofer developed the first, however, unsuccessful MP3 player. In 1997, developer Tomislav Uzelac of Advanced Multimedia Products invented the AMP MP3 Playback Engine, the first successful MP3 player. Two university students, Justin Frankel and Dmitry Boldyrev ported AMP to Windows and created Winamp. In 1998, Winamp became a free MP3 music player boosting the success of MP3. No licensing fees are required to use an MP3 player. Here is an example of an mp3 player. History of MP3 players.

1998: Eiger Labs releases the first of the MP3 players; the MPMan F10, with 32MB of memory.

The Diamond Rio PMP300, with 32MB of memory, is released shortly after the MPMan F10. The Rio's commercial success makes MP3 a viable format.

1999: The Sensory Science RaveMP 2100 arrives. It's the first MP3 player with 64MB of memory, voice-recording capabilities and an FM tuner.

Creative Labs' Nomad is the first MP3 player to come with a docking station, eliminating wires.

Remote Solutions' Personal Jukebox PJB-100 is released in fall. It's the first MP3 player to use an internal hard drive instead of flash memory. It's big and clunky, but it offers a then-astonishing 4.8 GB of storage. This MP3 player is the father of the modern iPod and other hard-drive-based MP3 players.

2000: I2Go eGo is released, with 2GB of storage using micro-drive technology. Its size is comparable with smaller flash-based MP3 players, but the price is prohibitively high and the company folds.

What Can MP3 Do
Fraunhofer Gesellschaft has this to say about MP3:"Without Data reduction, digital audio signals typically consist of 16 bit samples recorded at a sampling rate more than twice the actual audio bandwidth (e.g. 44.1 kHz for Compact Discs). So you end up with more than 1.400 Mbit to represent just one second of stereo music in CD quality. By using MPEG audio coding, you may shrink down the original sound data from a CD by a factor of 12, without losing sound quality." Controversy

Although these issues aren't usually controversial within digital audio players, they are matters of continuing controversy and litigation, including but not limited to content distribution and protection, and digital rights management (DRM).

Lawsuit with RIAA
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) filed a lawsuit in late 1998 against Diamond Multimedia for its Rio players,alleging that the device encouraged copying music illegally. But Diamond won a legal victory on the shoulders of the Sony Corp. v. Universal City Studios case and DAPs were legally ruled as electronic devices.
According to SCENIHR, the risk of hearing damage from digital audio players depends on both sound level and listening time. The listening habits of most users are unlikely to cause hearing loss, but some people are putting their hearing at risk, because they set the volume control very high or listen to music at high levels for many hours per day. Such listening habits may result in temporary or permanent hearing loss, tinnitus, and difficulties understanding speech in noisy environments.
Creative Labs' Nomad Jukebox is released, with 6GB of storage. It's still a huge device, but it'shigh-quality sound makes this one of the best MP3 players on the market.

2001: Nike releases the PSA Play 120, the first MP3 player aimed at the workout crowd, with an armband and a coating to keep sweat from getting into the player.

The Apple iPod debuts, offering 5GB of storage and seamless integration with the iTunes Music Library, but only if you've got a Mac.

2005: The fifth generation Apple iPod adds a color screen and video playback, along with 60GB of storage.

Music phones take off in the United States, with LG, Samsung, Motorola, Nokia and SonyEricsson releasing phones with integrated MP3 players.

2002: The second generation Apple iPod arrives, offering up to 20GB of storage and built-in Windows compatibility. Apple also launches the iTunes Music Store, which will grow to become one of the largest music distribution services online.

Archos releases Jukebox Multimedia, letting users record from a camera attachment and view photos and video. This MP3 player is the first portable multimedia device.

2006: More MP3 players are sold in musicphones than as stand-alone devices.

2007: Apple releases iPhone and iPod Touch. These MP3 players feature touch screens, Web connectivity and downloadable software that expands their functionality. History of MP3 player
