MPEGs are digital video files standardized by the global Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). Videos were usually shared over the Internet using MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 compression. MPEG-1, created in 1993, was MPEG's first video and audio compression standard. In 1995, MPEG-2 succeeded MPEG-1. MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 encode video for digital TV, DVDs, and home movies. Most video players can open MPEG files. Some popular players are Apple's QuickTime, Microsoft's Windows Media Player, and VideoLAN's VLC. MPEGs are easily and often saved in today's most common format called .MP4 or as a .MPG file.
