Mpeg3 stands for Mpeg 1 layer 3. What Mpeg3 (also known as mp3 because
of the file extension name .mp3) is: Mpeg3's are layered and extremely
compressed audio data that do not lose sound quality due to this
compression, therefore delivering you a song or sound close to
laserdisc quality with a readable computer file being fairly small in

and get: uranus.mp3 (118kB, 15sec)
the file should sound like this:
   Al 5000: You'll have to return to your sleeping
            chambers. Resuscitation isn't scheduled
            until we're close to Pluto.
   Yakko: Sorry. If I sleep any more, I'll be close to goofy.
   Wakko: As long as we don't get too close to Uranus.
   Dot: I thought we discussed cutting that line.

Hope, this helps.
