Music can be heard live or in electronic form via compact discs, vinyl records, cassette tapes or, most recently, from music off the internet, some of which is free music downloads. These computer files are known as mp3 files, an audio encoding format. Music downloads have led to a decrease in sales at music stores. In the 1980s, music videos became popular due to the launch of the Music Television (MTV) cable channel. A music video is a short film that accompanies a piece of music. « Show less
