What is MPEG?

MPEG files are highly compressed video files. They’re named after the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG), a group that sets worldwide standards for coding audio, video, graphics and other media. MPEG videos are highly shareable because they take up a small amount of storage space. They’re also the standard for online videos due to their high compression and high quality.

MPEG is also the coding standard behind some of the most commonly used file containers, like MP4 (which stands for “MPEG-4 Part 14”) and MP3 (which stands for “MPEG Audio Layer III”). The difference is that MPEG is an encoding standard and MP4s or MP3s are file containers. MPEG videos can be played with Windows Media Player, VLC, QuickTime and many others.

What is MP3?

An MP3 is a digital audio file that’s compressed so it’s easy to store and transfer. It’s a lossy format, meaning it drops some of the audio’s sound when it’s compressed. Most of this dropped sound is inaudible when you play it back, however. MP3 files can be about one-tenth the size of lossless audio files, making them easy to share, store and play back on most devices.
