Update on April 23, 2020

Many MPEG videos cannot be played on MOV players. Why? How can I convert MPEG to MOV and play them with MOV players smoothly? Please bring these questions and the confusion in your heart, and find the answers in the text with me. A professional MPEG to MOV converter will guide you:

MPEG is well-known as a video codec, but a video format. However, the names of some videos do end with .mpeg, which means they are MPEG videos. MPEG include three main encoders for different usages. You should know that one of the parts is used for broadcasting videos for TV channels, i.e MPEG 2 video, which can be well supported by most media players. As a successor of MPEG-2, MPEG-4 is widely used for streaming videos on the Internet, encoding DVDs, transporting video calls, and also broadcasting TV channels. MPEG-4 can also be well played on most MOV players. But when coming to MPEG 1 video (Usually named as MPEG video), due to the niche encoding standard, many players do not support it and fail to open it. Thus, you need to convert the MPEG video to other formats so as to smoothly play them on your MOV video players.
