More about MPEG format
MPEG (pronounced M-peg), which stands for Moving Picture Experts Group, is the name of a family of standards used for coding audio-visual information (e.g., movies, video, music) in a digital compressed format. The major advantage of MPEG compared to other video and audio coding formats is that MPEG files are much smaller for the same quality. This is because MPEG uses very sophisticated compression techniques. MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 are the most commonly used MPEG standards. MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 mostly produce files with the .mpg extension, and MPEG-4 with .mp4 file extension.
