usually a small device than can store and play sounds that are encoded with mp3 codec.
An MP3 player is a small portable device used to hold your music. They've been around for a little while now, since about 1997. Depending on how much storage space you have, you can put hundreds and hundreds on your favorite songs on there. You can buy a docking station for it also, which will let you play the music on the MP3 through a stereo-like system with speakers. The docking station also will recharge the MP3 battery. MP3's come in various styles,colors and brands. They are quite lightweight and can easily fit in your pocket or purse. They're not that expensive either.
a player of Mp3's, most common is an iPod, but pretty much every electronic device can be used as an Mp3 Player!

MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer 3 (or III), more commonly referred to as MP3, is a patented digital audio encoding format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players.
MP3 is an audio-specific format that was designed by the Moving Picture Experts Group as part of its MPEG-1 standard and later extended in MPEG-2 standard. The first MPEG subgroup - Audio group was formed by several teams of engineers at Fraunhofer IIS, University of Hannover, AT&T-Bell Labs, Thomson-Brandt, CCETT, and others. MPEG-1 Audio (MPEG-1 Part 3), which included MPEG-1 Audio Layer I, II and III was approved as a committee draft of ISO/IEC standard in 1991, finalised in 1992 and published in 1993 (ISO/IEC 11172-3:1993). Backwards compatible MPEG-2 Audio (MPEG-2 Part 3) with additional bit rates and sample rates was published in 1995 (ISO/IEC 13818-3:1995).
The use in MP3 of a lossy compression algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original uncompressed audio for most listeners. An MP3 file that is created using the setting of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is about 11 times smaller[note 1] than the CD file created from the original audio source. An MP3 file can also be constructed at higher or lower bit rates, with higher or lower resulting quality. http://www.texttocharity.com is an opportunity to serve humanity!
You don't know what an MP3 player is? If you are 60, I understand but your username gives away the fact that you might be younger than that. No offence. Sorry. An MP3 player is a music playing device that you can download songs on to. Like an ipod. and you listen to it by plugging headphones into it.
an mp3 player is a digital music player that plays mp3 formats
My son must think it's the life line to the outside world, something like external heart that plays music.....
According to Wikipedia...
A digital audio player, shortened to DAP, is a consumer electronic device that stores, organizes and plays digital audio files. In contrast, analog audio players play music from cassette tapes, or records. Portable devices that also play video and text are referred to as portable media players. Often digital audio players are sold as MP3 players, even if they support other file formats.

Is there a way to put a MP3 file on a hub. Where does one get the player, and does it go in the video capsule?Thanks.

Mine can only hold about 60, but I feel like I don't really need more than that. Is this normal?
