MPEG is a popular standard for video compression. It provides high compression ratios without significant loss of video quality. The most popular file extensions for this standard include .mpeg and .mp4. MPEG videos are compressed with MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 video codecs. MP4 is based on the more recent MPEG-4 standard which is one of the newest video formats in wide use for storing video on computers and mobile devices.

The first option to change the format of a video is to use conversion software – you can try out Movavi MPEG-to-MP4 converter for free. This converter for Windows and Mac supports all popular video and audio formats, including AVI, FLV, 3GP, and MP3. The program also supports batch conversion. You can even edit your videos before converting – rotate and flip clips, add watermarks and subtitles, crop and trim unwanted parts, and more.
