To save you from such troubles, we did some search and finished this guide - transfer MPG videos to MP4 without quality loss. Now check how to process the conversion.

Basic Information: MPG, MP4 and MPEG

Essentially there is no difference between the MPG format and the MPEG format. The reason for the difference is that a three-letter file extension was required in older versions of Windows, so MPEG was shortened to MPG. But, some websites, such as YouTube, don't accept uploads in the MPG format because it is an older standard.


Till now, MPEG has standardized several compression formats and ancillary standards including MPEG-4. MPEG-4 also consists of several standards - termed "parts" and each part covers a certain aspect of the whole specification. MP4 is one of the parts, which stands for MPEG-4 Part 14.


To conclude, the MPG=MPEG≠MP4.
