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?

But it's not actually a container as such, audio formats have headers and such so I'm guessing tags are essentially just extra data in the headers?

Of course I could be completely wrong wink.gif
