krou (1027572) writes "Norwegian developer Dagfinn Bach, who worked on the first MP3 player in 1993, has unveiled a new music file format called MusicDNA, which can 'include things like lyrics, videos, artwork and blog posts, which will continually be updated, as well as the music.' The new file format has a number of investors, including German researcher Karlheinz Brandenburg, who invented the MP3. Labels Beggars Group and Tommy Boy have both signed on to use MusicDNA. Bach said: "We can deliver a file that is extremely searchable and can carry up to 32GB of extra information in the file itself. And it will be dynamically updatable so that every time the user is connected, his file will be updated." Brandenburg also added that he thought this was "one very nice way" of enriching legal music with extras for customers to enjoy."
