Convert MP1 to WMA online, for free.
MPEG-1 Audio Layer 1 (MP1) is an earlier, simpler version of the MPEG audio standard. MP1 is mostly obsolete, but still supported. MP1 was part of the Digital Compact Cassette format. Almost all files that were MP1 were replaced by the newer MPEG-1 Audio Layer II (MP2) and MPEG-1 Audio Layer III or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III (MP3) file formats.
Due to MP1 being largely obsolete, VLC media player is the best option for opening an MP1 file, with the bonus that this player works across platforms.
Initial Release: 1993
Microsoft initially developed the Windows Media Audio (WMA) file format to compete with the MP3 file format. WMA is both an audio codec and audio format. WMA has evolved since its inception in 1999, with several updated versions: WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, and WMA Voice. It is a key component of Windows Media, which Microsoft discontinued.
As a key component of Windows Media, Windows Media Player supports WMA files and is usually the default program for opening these. Because of their relative ubiquity, however, many other players and programs support the file type. WMA files are also frequently used in online streaming.
Other programs that can open WMA files include VLC media player and UltraMixer. For mobile devices, try OverDrive Media Console, which has separate versions for Apple iOS, Google Android, and Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile.
