Prior to Mp3 technology, music files had to be quite large in size to be able to have a high quality sound. Although the compression techniques used reduced the file size, they caused a lot of noise in the quality of the sound. Before the development of mp3, music files were mostly in WAV format. In waw format, the sound quality was high, but the sound files of a few seconds occupied a few megabytes of space.

For this reason, the need to obtain audio files with a high compression ratio and the most degraded quality loss has emerged. In this context, many companies have formed working groups.

The German company Fraunhofer-Gesellshaft employees Bernd Kurten, Karl-Heinz Brandenburg, Bernhard Grill, Thomas Sporer and Ernst Eberlein. The Fraunhofer Company also tried to make mp3 players but they were not successful. In 1997 the MP3 Playback Engine AMP was invented by Tomislav Uzelac. But it did not gain commercial value. But a few months later, Dmitry Boldyrev and Justin Frankel brought AMP technology into Windows. As a result, a small, free mp3 player called Winamp was born. Ease of use made Winamp very popular. In the 90s, almost every computer had a Winamp. Winamp’s success in windows operating system has made the mp3 files in support of Windows Media Player, the built-in media player of Windows.
