For those who don't have Advanced Streaming Format or RealAudio playback capability, we've provided the sound track to "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody" in six common audio file formats, so that you can choose the format appropriate for your browser and operating system. Although most browsers contain built-in support for .au files, our recommendation, if you have the proper player software and codec (coder/decoder or compressor/decompressor), is the MPEG-2 Audio Layer III file (apg-2.mp3), due to its small size and relatively high audio quality.

apg.aiff Mac/SGI Audio Interchange File Format.
Signed PCM encoded. 22,050 Hz sampling rate. 8-bit sample size. Content-Type audio/x-aiff. 1,375,754 bytes.
apg.au Sun/NexT Audio format.
CCITT G.711 µ-Law encoded. 8,012 Hz sampling rate. 8-bit sample size. Content-Type audio/basic. 499,897 bytes.
apg-1.mp2 MPEG-1 Audio Layer II (ISO/IEC 11172-3) format.
32,000 Hz sampling rate. 32 kbps data rate. 3468 frames. Content-Type audio/x-mpeg. 249,697 bytes.
apg-1.mp3 MPEG-1 Audio Layer III (ISO/IEC 11172-3) format.
44,100 Hz sampling rate. 56 kbps data rate. 4802 frames. Content-Type audio/x-mpeg. 437,028 bytes.
apg-2.mp3 MPEG-2 Audio Layer III (ISO/IEC 13818-3) format.
22,050 Hz sampling rate. 32 kbps data rate. 2379 frames. Content-Type audio/x-mpeg. 247,488 bytes.
apg.wav Microsoft Windows RIFF (Resource Interchange File Format) Wave format.
PCM encoded. 22,050 Hz sampling rate. 8-bit sample size. Content-Type audio/x-wav. 1,376,542 bytes.

  

apg-2.m3u Special note: If your connection speed is 40 kbps or better and you have an MPEG-2 Audio Layer III Player which supports the .m3u file format (Content-Type audio/x-mpegurl), then select apg-2.m3u, which will pseudo-stream the apg-2.mp3 file to your player program via HTTP. Many MPEG Audio Layer III player programs, including Nullsoft Winamp (for Win XP/Vista/7), support the .m3u PlayList file format.
