An M2A file is an audio file that has been compressed with MPEG-1 Layer 2 audio compression. It is a standard compressed audio format and can be played back by several different programs.

Some video programs may export an M2A audio file along with a corresponding .M2V video file. These files can often be merged together into a single media file.
