MPG is one of the old file format use for video data. MPG is a number of file extensions for MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 audio and video compression. MPEG-1 Part 2 video is rare nowadays, and this extension typically refers to an MPG or MPEG program stream. The only reason a file is ever given the "mpg" extension is that older file systems and operating systems are restricted to 8.3 file names- that is, 8 letters, a period, and a three-letter extension... In this case, MPG mostly uses file converted from VHS tape or VCD players.

On the other hand, MP4 is the latest and widely used video format around the world. MP4 uses MPEG-4 compression, which is the advanced/updated form of the MPEG-1 compression technique.

If you have an old VCD player and you want to play your video on that or any other device which only supports the MPG file, then you have to convert your MP4 video to MPG format.
