    MPEG (pronounced EHM-pehg), the Moving Picture Experts Group, develops standards for digital video and digital audio compression. It operates under the auspices of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The MPEG standards are an evolving series, each designed for a different purpose.
    To use MPEG video files, you need a personal computer with sufficient processor speed, internal memory, and hard disk space to handle and play the typically large MPEG file (which has a file name suffix of .mpg). You also need an MPEG viewer or client software that plays MPEG files. (Note that .mp3 file suffixes indicate MP3 (MPEG-1 audio layer-3) files, not MPEG-3 standard files.) You can download shareware or commercial MPEG players from a number of sites on the Web.

    .mpg is just the suffix

    they're the same thing. MPEG is also the name of the organization that creates MPEG video formats, but the .mpg and .mpeg file extensions are the same thing.

    an .mpg/.mpeg file is a container that combines an .m1v or .m2v video stream with an .mp2 audio stream.

    .mpe will work the same as .mpeg or .mpg extensions too...

    Thx brainiac that&#39;s sorta the answer I was looking, but not quite right. Because I can play .mpg files fine but when I try to play .mpeg files it tells me that a plugin is needed and so I download it and install and then it gives me an error when I try to play it, it something like a bitcasting error or something like that. Windows media will play them after an error message asking if I want to continue anyway

    never heard of such a problem. it doesn&#39;t sound like a standard mpeg file, then, but maybe a modified version of mpeg... or are you streaming these files from the internet?

    if it&#39;s not that, there might be something wrong with your Mpeg-1 decoder.

    it&#39;s all news to me, though.

    This might be a bit too simple, but have you tried deleting the &#39;e&#39; from the .mpeg file extension? Who knows? It just may just be stupid enough to work.
