    MPEG File Format

    Short Name MPEG
    Long Name Moving Picture Experts Group
    Typical File Extensions .mpeg .mpg .m1v .mpe
    Contains Video
    MPEG is a standard for storing video (with sound).

    There a number of variants: MPEGs are compressed:
    • Within frames they are compressed using a lossy scheme, somewhat similar to that used in JPEG images.

    • Between frames ("frame-to-frame" or "temporal" compression), they are compressed by storing the difference between frames.
    Please Note: As far as video is concerned, the Windows Media player can only support MPEG-1 unless additional software is installed. See http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;q316992

    A technical discussion of this format can be found in Chapter 30 of Graphics File Formats by David C. Kay and John R. Levine. This book discusses only MPEG-1 and MPEG-2, and then only at a high level.
