I tried it and immediately fell in love! It was so easy to use! After a couple conversions I bought the guys a cup of coffee. A couple more and decided this was too good to abuse! I joined! My life is so much easier!

I had a huge, problematic file to convert that couldn't go through the usual automated conversion process. The Zamzar team responded quickly to my request for help, and they took the extra steps needed to do it manually.

I've used this product for years. And customer service is excellent. Just had an issue where I was charged and I didn't agree with the charge and they took care of it, even though they didn't have to.

Great for when you need a lot of conversions in a short time. You have directly access and can even put the subscription on for just a month.

Sabina Calis

Great thanks to you all for helping me to get the OLD files converted correctly. 20 years, quite a long time, reviewing the files brings much memory to me. That's the best gift I received last year. Thank you all again.

Fantastic service! My mom's computer died and she has 1000+ Word Perfect files she wants to keep for some reason. Since Word Perfect is basically dead, I decided to convert all her files. Zamzar's converter was perfect.

MPG Video Format

MPG Converter

An MPG file has a full name of MPEG Video File and was developed by the Moving Pictures Experts group.

The MPG format is a video format which has been embedded with MPEG compression, specifically MPEG-1 or -2 formatting.

MPG files are widely used which is perhaps surprising given the type of compression that is used – lossy – means there’s some degradation to the file. Perhaps the reason they are so popular though is because typically they’re one of the smallest video file formats around which makes sharing and storage so easy, plus almost all video applications can open them.

The files themselves are made up of audio, video and metadata moulded into one file seamlessly.

Almost all video applications can open an MPG file including Windows Media Player and The VLC Player.

MP4 Video Format

MP4 Converter

An MP4 file is often called an MPEG4 file and it is used to store video and/or audio data. When iTunes launched in 2001 the MP4 file format saw a major boom in use. This is because it is the standard format for the majority of iTunes downloads. As well as iTunes causing a major increase in use, the Internet has also been behind its increased popularity as when a user downloads a video on the Internet it tends to be in the MP4 format. MP4 files are clever in their design in that they combine compression technologies which means they tend to be small in size which is another reason for their popularity.

An MP4 file is often known as a container format because of the way it is structured. MP4 files were the file type of choice for Apple’s iTunes mainly because of how efficient they are. In other words, they were small in size but still retained the quality of the audio and video elements. The reason for this is because the audio compression is handled differently from the video compression with the video compression being done using MPEG-4 whilst the audio compression uses AAC which actually helps to improve the audio quality. The increasing popularity of MP4 files has seen the creation of a number of MP4 players which are designed to play MP4 files.

No, is the answer. MP4 is, to all intents and purposes, the same as MPEG-4, but it is not the same as MPEG. MPEG stands for the Moving Pictures Expert Group and MPEG has many different standards ranging from 1 to 21. MPEG-4 is one such standard, and that is often shortened to MP4. MPEG, meanwhile, is often shortened to MPG.

MP4 files are much smaller in size than MPG files, and, at the same bit-rate, MP4 is also better in quality, as it supports more advanced video codecs. MP4 files are also easier to open across a wider range of applications. MPG still has its place, but increasingly MP4 files are more widely used.

It can, but a program such as WinX Video Converter (https://www.winxdvd.com/video-converter/) will need to be downloaded first. Alternatively, you can use an online file converter, such as Zamzar, which converts MPG to MP4 in real time, and with no need to download any software.

MPEG-4 is a codec that was developed by the Moving Pictures Expert Group (MPEG). MPEG was the first codec it developed, and since then standards have ranged from 1-21, with MPEG-4 being one such standard.
