    The players used to exist for a few years, but heat inside vehicles during sunny weather soon warped the discs.

    Article is factually incorrect. Being a former video encoding nut and knowing these things. Mpeg-1 video had Mpeg-1 layer 2 audio not layer 3 so isn't relevent. Yes it's in the spec but since it's not in the video cd spec it would never be used.

    Websites running an article on the basic history can't even get the origins correct.

    It does not matter what format you using as long as your player of choice can decode & play them.

    The MP3 format is not going anywhere for some time.

    Just keep your fingers crossed for calm days

    Mp3 is far from dead.
    Vinyl has made a comeback, i'm waiting for cassette tapes to be back on the shelves soon

    I don't even know what to make of this comment...

    MP3 is poopy pants.

    Oh, them X) Reckon they'll be dead before the MP3 is. Those in glasses houses, misery like company etc.

    No new devices will not have the codec as they have ended licencing

    MP3 dead? I didn't realise that they'd even been ill

    Better headline would have been MPFree.

    Better headline would have been MPFree.



    ...or a headline as confusing as the confused journalists creating the articles:

    "MP3 used a lot less & loses to free lossless format"

    My Compact Discs were never alive, so I have nothing to add to this thread

    Just use Spotify.

    Also there are some fantastic (and free!) podcasts out there
