Popular video format standardized by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG); compressed using MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 compression; often used for creating movies that are distributed over the Internet.
An MPEG file extension is a compressed video file format developed into a standard by the Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG), and is a lossy compression format for video and audio. Both streams are contained in an MPEG file. The MPEG-1 format compresses VHS-quality digital video signals down to 1.5 megabits per second, a compression ratio of 26:1, while maintaining quality without much loss. It is a popular format, and is standard for a variety of products and technologies. It is frequently used to create internet delivered movies, digital broadcasts, and cable and satellite television. The MPEG-1 standard does not specify how encoding is to be performed, thus the efficiency can vary drastically based on the encoder used. The first version of the standard was published in 1993.
