WMV Video Format WMV Converter
The WMV format name is short for Windows Media Video file. Like the name suggests, Microsoft developed the WMV format for use with Windows. It’s been around since 1999 and is a common video format which is still the default format in Windows Media Player. WMV files can store short clips, animations, TV episodes and whole high-definition feature films. If a WMV video has been bought through the Microsoft Store, then the file might be protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM), which means it can’t be shared or copied.
In addition to Windows Media Player, you can open WMV files using Windows Movies & TV and VLC media player. You can also upload WMV files to YouTube and Vimeo, or edit them using some video editors, including Pinnacle Studio and Adobe Premiere Pro for Windows.
MPG Video Format MPG Converter
The Motion Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) developed the MPG video file format in the early 1990s. Videos with the .mpg file extension can be either MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 files. Both these types of video use lossy compression to make the files smaller for storing and sharing, and are formats that contain audio, video and metadata. The lossy compression can affect video and audio quality, but MPG is still a very popular and widely supported format. MPEG-2 was typically used for DVDs or TV.
Both MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 have ISO certification and almost all video applications and devices can open an MPG file, including Windows Media Player, Apple QuickTime and VLC. In recent years, MP4 and HEVC formats have become more popular with people filming on smartphones, sharing videos, or uploading video files to social media.
