MP3 (MPEG Layer 3) is an audio file format supported by MusicMatch Jukebox. Traditional audio files can be quite large, which is why it is difficult to store music on PCs. An MP3 file is an audio file that has been compressed (anywhere from one-fifth to one-seventeenth of its original size) with little or no loss in sound quality. That means a great-sounding file, in a package small enough that it can be downloaded and/or stored on your computer.

WMA file format
Windows Media 4.0 (WMA) refers to an audio and video format created by Microsoft (R). It gives high-quality download-and-play music with very small files. Windows Media 4.0 provides excellent quality for streaming (listening to a file on the Internet without having to download it) as well - especially on slower Internet connections. It also incorporates Windows Media Digital Rights Management, which makes digital content distribution more attractive to artists and publishers by enabling them to distribute their content to a broader audience, but requires a license for consumers to play the content. Windows Media video streams deliver excellent video quality at lower bandwidths.
