mpc file format

MPC is an audio file format used by Musepack. MPC files are compressed audio files based on MPEG-2 algorithms. MPC files do not use a constant bitrate, but have a changing bitrate that adapts to the need of a specific portion of the audio data. This allows for higher-quality audio. MPC files can be converted to .MP3 files using media converting software such as Audio Converter Studio.

MIME: audio/x-musepack, audio/musepack
