Part 1 What is MKV

MPEG, short for Moving Picture Experts Group, is also known as MPG. It refers to the family of digital video compression standards. Generally speaking, MPEG files have better video quality. And though it is at high compression rate, it keeps the high image quality. That's why MPEG files are easy to stream and download.

Part 2 MPEG-1 VS MPEG-2

MPEG compression standard include MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, MPEG-7 and MPEG-21. Here we will talk about the difference between MPEG-1 and MPEG-2.

MPEG1 is a standard for lossy compression of video and audio. It is designed to compress VHS-quality raw digital video and CD audio down to 1.5 Mbit/s (26:1 and 6:1 compression ratios respectively) without excessive quality loss, making video CDs, digital cable/satellite TV and digital audio broadcasting (DAB) possible.

MPEG2 is widely used as the format of digital television signals that are broadcast by terrestrial, cable, and direct broadcast satellite TV systems. It also specifies the format of movies and other programs that are distributed on DVD and similar discs. As such, TV stations, TV receivers, DVD players, and other equipment are often designed to this standard.

Main Difference between MPEG-1 and MPEG-2

• MPEG2 succeeded the MPEG1 to address some of the older standard's weaknesses.

• MPEG2 has better quality than MPEG1.

• MPEG1 is used for VCD while MPEG2 is used for DVD.

• One may consider MPEG2 as MPEG1 that supports higher resolution and capable of using higher and variable bitrates.

• MPEG1 is older than MPEG2 but the former is arguably better in lower bitrates.

• MPEG2 has a more complex encoding algorithm.
