MPG, also known as the Moving Pictures Experts Group, is dedicated to the standardization of moving image and its accompanying audio coding. There are multiple MPG formats: MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4. As a matter of fact, it’s not uncommon to find yourself in such a dilemma that most applications aren’t very supportive of the MPG files. That’s especially true if you’re using Mac PC. As one of the most commonly used video format coding systems in the world, MPG format has been applied more and more in the field of video. It is mainly used for media streaming and online video. Therefore, a large number of MPG format videos will take up too much space on your computer. If you want to release more capacity to store other digital data, you can choose to burn these MPG videos to DVDs. Next I would like to make brief introductions to 4 best DVD burning software tools.
