MPEG-1: It is the most wildly compatible lossy video/audio format so far. Specifically, it can be used on Video CD, SVCD and is also used for low-quality video on DVD Video without excessive quality loss. Moreover, digital satellite and cable TV services once adopted MPEG-1 before MPEG-2 became widespread.

MPEG-2: It is used to transport video and audio standards for broadcast-quality television and also for SVCD and DVD Video. MPEG-2 standard is considerably broader in scope and of wider appeal – supporting interlacing and high definition. Compared with MPEG-1, MPEG-2 is standard for DVD quality and supports higher resolutions and bitrates. But MPEG-2 streams are not compatible with MPEG-1 streams. If you have an old player that only supports MPEG-1, this player can't play the newer MPEG-2 formats.
