As I posted before, MPn and MPEGn are products of the Motion Picture
Experts Group, with MPn being the nth Level of audio for video formats.
There are so many audio and video formats floating around that even
enumerating them is likely to fail - invention seems to come faster than
documentation. One problem is that where the WAV envelope is now rarely
used for anything but PCM, AVI (Audio Video Interleaved) can and does
contain a wide variety of formats defined by their codecs. Neither WAV
nor AVI is "defined", by the way; WAV is understood to mean uncompressed
PCM, but in the past has contained MPn files (and others) and the option
is still present.
