what is a .ape file?

The APE file extension is a data format associated to Monkey's Audio Lossless compression format. APE files and Monkey's Audio Lossless compression format, were developed by Monkey's Audio. These files are audio files that contain error detection and tag supports that store information about audio files. They work hand in hand with CUE files in creating audio CD image. This format is more popularly used among Windows users. It uses highly competitive compression rate and at the same time decompression may result to getting the original file. They are used to reduce bandwidth, file transfer time and storage requirements. The software’s main competitor is FLAC; however the former is better in terms of compression efficiency though decoding may take longer time. The Monkey's Audio encoder is free and can be incorporated into other software programs. Files in APE format can be opened with MPlayer and JMAC in Mac Os, Linux and Microsoft Windows based Systems

MPlayer

MPlayer

The MPlayer software is a free media player application, and this program is usually categorized as freeware. However, the MPlayer application is actually an open source program, which means its source code (the foundation of its software) can be edited, improved or enhanced by anyone. The MPlayer program is also supported by major operating systems like Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OS X and various Linux as well as UNIX distributions. OS/2, AmigaOS, Syllable, AROS Research OS and MorphOS are also implemented with support for the MPlayer application. This program can even work on Microsoft DOS (Disk Operating System) with the use of the HX DOS Extender (Microsoft Windows version only). The MPlayer software has also been ported to several devices with the use of third-party community plug-ins, including one for Amazon Kindle. The MPlayer program looks a little like the VLC Media Player application and has inherited the latter's ability to play any type of media content known to most users, and even save streamed media content to a file on the local machine. MPlayer also supports a companion application called mEncoder, which is primarily used for streaming content input and for transcoding it to several output formats, with a few additional video transformation processes implemented into its operations.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ape files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ape. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
