MPG is a common video file format and there are a great number of applications you can use to open MPG files. But one of the exceptions is that sometimes people still can't import MPG files into iMovie and other Apple software. A good solution to solve such problems is to convert MPG videos to MOV that is natively supported by Apple. Follow this article to convert MPG to MOV free with a great video converter:

MPG files usually incorporates MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 audio and video compression. MPEG-1 was designed for Video-CD and SVCD. Low-quality DVD Video also uses MPEG-1. MPGE 2 is typically used for DVD and digital TV broadcast. If you convert an old DVD disc or tape to digital files, chances are that the files are with the .mpg extension. Since Apple QuickTime does not natively support MPEG-2 playback (You need to purchase Apple's MPEG-2 Playback Component), and Apple editing applications like iMovie also often fail to recognize MPG files, thus many people are looking for a good way to play and edit MPG files on Apple devices. In fact, you can convert MPG to MOV to solve the problem easily, and this article shows you how to do the conversion for free.
