APE (Monkey’s Audio) is a lossless audio file format released in 2000 by Matthew T. Ashland. Because it’s a lossless sound format, it doesn’t lose data during compression, unlike other standard formats like AAC, MP3, and Vorbis. However, Monkey’s Audio is available on PC only. To play APE on Mac OS X and Linux, you’ll need a third-party plugin like JRiver Media Center.
A file with a .trp filename extension is an HD (High Definition) video file that uses MPEG-2 compression. TRP files are typically used to synchronize audio and video codecs in DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting). The video codec is usually H.264, whereas audio data comes in AC3 format. This makes the TRP format to be supported by most media player programs.
