What is AIFF? Why Convert AIFF to MP3?

The AIFF files people normally see can be divided into two kinds: one is the actual AIFF which is uncompressed and used to store sound data for personal computers or other electronic audio devices. Normally this kind of AIFF is old in type and big in file size, taking much hard drive space, and unsupported by many popular media players or portable devices. The other kind is AIFF-C, the variant of AIFF, developed by Apple for its Mac OS X platform and also with extension .aiff. This kind of AIFF is quite compatible with Apple products but not other platforms.


So in order to further extend both AIFF playback on more media players or portable devices, one widely adopted solution is to convert AIFF to MP3, the most universal audio format and quite compatible with almost any media player or portable device.
