A video file saved in .mjpeg or .mjpg filename extension stands for Motion JPEG (M-JPEG or MJPEG) encoded video. Motion JPEG is virtually a video compression format typically encapsulated in .avi and .mov container format in addition to .mjpeg or .mjpg format.
MJPEG video is widely used in media players, game consoles, digital cameras, IP cameras, webcams, streaming servers, video cameras, and non-linear video editors. But it requires the support of encoders or plugins in many cases, otherwise you'll run into playback issue. By contrast, H.264 MP4 video is supposed to be the industry standard that enjoys broad client support. Therefore, this post will expound how to convert MJPEG to MP4 for solving format incompatibility issue.
