Knowledge sharing: About MPEG, MPG and MP4
1. What's MPEG? MPEG, also MPG, pronounced m-peg, is the acronym of Moving Picture Experts Group. MPEG specializes in the development of video and audio encoding standards. When you have come into possession of a file with an .MPEG or .MPG extension, you may have either MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 video, in which MPEG-1 is used on VCD discs and MPEG-2 video is used for SVCD and DVD discs. The major advantage of MPEG is that MPEG files are much smaller for the same quality. This is because MPEG uses very sophisticated compression techniques.
2. What's the difference between MPEG and MP4? MP4 (or MPEG-4) is a graphics and video compression algorithm standard that is based on MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 and Apple QuickTime technology. Different from MPEG (MPEG-1 or MPEG-2), MP4 is most commonly used to store digital video and audio streams, but can also store other data such as subtitles and still images.
