CBR Definition - What is CBR?

What does CBR stand for?

CBR, or constant bit rate is a method for encoding music files for playback on a phone or MP3 player. The user chooses a "size" for the final file, and the maximum amount of data for any given time period (typically kilobits per second) is set. The main advantage of this method is consistency, so a file can stream cleanly.
