Are you worried about the video quality after format conversion? If the software is not powerful enough, the video quality will be downgraded. In this article, we will tell you how to quickly and effectively convert MPEG/MPG to MP4.

Part 1: About MPEG/MPG/MP4

MPEG, or MPG, fully known as Moving Picture Experts Group, was created by ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and IEC in 1988. This group specializes in formulating the standards of MPEG videos and audios.
MPEG is the international standard for the compression algorithm of motion images. Now, it is supported by all platforms. It includes MPEG-1, MPEG-2and MPEG-4. MPEG-1 is widely used in VCD; MPEG-2 is the specific format of DVD, HDTV and the high quality videos. MPEG-4 is a new compression algorithm. With this algorithm, an ASF video lasting 120 min can be compressed to 300MB. That makes us watch the videos online. The file extension is MPEG or MPG.
MP4 is the digital multimedia container format used in videos, audios, static images and subtitles. The file extension is “.mp4”. This format is always used in online streaming videos. It is one of the common formats because it is compatible with most of the portable devices and media players.
Note: When watching the steaming videos, you can watch the videos while they are being downloaded. You merely wait for a delay of a few seconds.
The differences between MPEG and MP4:
MPEG is the encoding algorithm that defines the way of compression and converts to information. MP4 is a container format which can store MPEG4/H.264-encoded data, videos, audios, subtitles and index.
After understanding their differences, we will talk about how to convert MPEG/MPG to MP4.
