MPEG is one of the most popular formats for video, and it’s easy to see why. MPEG files have a high level of compression, yet retain very good quality, so converting large files to MPEG significantly reduces the size of the files. So now you know what to do if you have a great film collection and want to save it, but don’t have sufficient hard disk space available. Just convert your favorite movies to MPEG first!
To do this, use Movavi Video Converter. This software is not just a good MPEG-1 converter, but a powerful tool to manage your multimedia files. Convert them between more than 180 formats and save for more than 200 gadgets. Download the Windows or Mac version of the program and follow the guide below.
Install the MPEG Converter
Download the video converter from the Movavi website and install it on your computer. This software supports all popular media formats, so you can not only transfer video to MPEG, but also convert MPEG files (including MPG, MOD, DAT, and VRO) to AVI, MP4, WMV, FLV, AVCHD, DVD-compatible video, and other video formats. You can also extract music from your video and save it MP3, WAV, AAC, or any other popular audio format.
Choose a Video File for Conversion
Open the Converter and click Add Media in the upper left corner, then Add Video. Choose one or more files to convert to MPEG.
Choose MPEG as the Output Format and Adjust Settings
Go to Video > MPG and select the MPEG preset that best suits your needs. Click the Cogwheel icon to manually adjust the frame size, bitrate, and more, if you wish.
Convert Your File to MPEG and Save It
Choose the folder in which to place the converted files by either selecting one of the available options in the Save to field or by clicking the Folder icon. Now start the processing by clicking Convert. The conversion to MPEG can take a while, depending on the size and number of your files you're converting. When the program has finished the conversion, the output folder will open automatically (unless you specified otherwise in the Preferences).
