What is the M4A format?

The M4A format is the successor of the MP3 format. Apple developed it as such. In more detail, the MPEG-4 audio file format (known as M4A due to its file extension) is an audio format that encodes its content with AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) codec or ALAC (Apple Lossless Audio Codec). The former is for compressed audio and the latter for raw audio data.

If you're wondering if M4A and MP4 are the same, they are not technically. Although both are MPEG-4, MP4 content is multimedia, whereas the M4A files are audio files only.

And don't dare to believe this format is unknown or something like that. Actually, M4A is very famous. iTunes uses it, and you can play it almost on any modern device you can imagine.


Is M4A better than MP3?

M4A shows some advantages over MP3. This is very logical because the M4A is the successor of the MP3 format and therefore showcases technological improvements.

First of all, M4A offers more options than MP3. For example, you can encrypt M4A files. Also, it supports lossless compression.

But the most striking improvements are related to sound quality. M4A files sound better than MP3 files, even when they are at the same bit rate. Likewise, M4A files have smaller sizes than MP3.

MP3 is the standard audio format, but only for the sake of convenience and tradition. The truth is, M4A is better overall. So if you're going to convert a YouTube video, choose M4A.
