What does MP3 supposed to stand for?
I know it means Music Player 3, but why the three? Third in the line? The cost? What?

Or just because it sounds better?

Mp3 stands for MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 m and p coming from mpeg, and the 3 from being the 3rd layer of audio compression, it's popular because it is highly compressed, but replicates uncompressed sound quality.

It just means a type of code that it uses.

no music player needed.

MP4 is usually movies. MP3 is usually tunes.
