An MPG file is a common video file that uses a digital video format standardized by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). It stores video, audio, and metadata interleaved together. MPG files are often used for creating movies that are distributed on the Internet.

Because MPEG compression is widely-supported, you can open an MPG file in most media players, including:

  • Microsoft Windows Media Player (Windows)
  • Apple QuickTime Player (Mac)
  • VideoLAN VLC Media Player (cross-platform)
