Part 2. Extended Knowledge about MPG, MPEG, MPEG 2, MPEG 4

MPEG is a short form of Moving Pictures Expert Group which is a group of working experts that was formed by ISO and IEC in the year 1988. The group was formed for the purpose of setting standards for video and audio compression and transmission. Talking in general reference MPG and MPEG is the same thing and the difference lies just in the name- .mpeg and .mpg. Originally the file extension for MPEG was .mpeg and for Windows, it was used as.MPG as Windows files needed a 3 letter extension. There was no restriction for the Mac system and thus .mpeg is used by Mac users. Later, with the update of the OS, Windows also started accepting .mpeg extension. Presently, MPG is the commonly used extension for Windows as well as Mac system to avoid any confusion.

MPEG2 and MPEG4 are the codecs that are used for video and audio compression standards. Talking about the difference between the two formats, MPEG2 was developed in the year 1995 and is commonly used for Digital TV broadcast, VCD, DVD, and other discs. Lossy compression methods for file size reduction are used.

MPEG 4, on the other hand, was developed in the year 1998 with the purpose of higher compression and lower bandwidth for having a high-quality image and audio quality. Overall MPEG 4 has higher compression with smaller file size and thus more versatile as compared to MPEG 2.
