We can se files with MP# extension. Is MP3 a container also, or it is a codec alone?

If its a codec alone, then how can we play and have some meta information in the mp3 files?

Metadata is stored in ID3 tag(s).

MP3 is MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3. MPEG-1 can be a container of sorts, though I don't know if this applies to MP3 files, which have just one audio track: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG-1#Program_streams
