mpg file icon:
The mpg file extension is traditionally used for video files in MPEG standard, developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group. These standards are an evolving set of standards for video and audio compression.
This standard permits the coding of progressive video at a transmission rate of about 1.5 million bits per second (bps). This file format was designed specifically for use with Video-CD and CD-i media.
The most common implementations of the MPEG-1 standard provides a video resolution of 352x240 at 30 frames per second (fps). When you use this standard, you receive a video that is slightly lower-quality than typical VCR videos.
Files that use the mv1 file extension typically are MPEG-1 elementary streams that contain only video information. Files that use MPG or MPEG extensions typically are MPEG-1 system streams that contain MPEG-1-encoded video and MPEG-1 Layer II (MP2)-encoded audio.
