MPEG (pronounced M-peg), which stands for Moving Picture Experts Group, is the name of a family of standards used for coding audio-visual information (e.g., movies, video, music) in a digital compressed format.
MPEG.ORG is the most complete and comprehensive index of MPEG resources on the Internet. MPEG.ORG mostly focuses on the MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 standards.
The major advantage of MPEG compared to other video and audio coding formats is that MPEG files are much smaller for the same quality. This is because MPEG uses very sophisticated compression techniques.
On the Web, MPEG Video files have the extension .mpg and MPEG Audio files generally have the extension .mp2 or .mp3. In order to play MPEG Video files or MPEG Audio, you should install an MPEG video player and anMPEG Audio Player on your system.
