Essential Guide: How to Convert DVD to MPEG

People usually have demands to convert DVD to MPEG. Why? As we all know, DVD has many limitations on streaming capability, portability or playback compatibilities. But MPEG compression can make it more efficient.

MPEG, short for Moving Picture Experts Group, is a working group of authorities that was formed by ISO and IEC to set standards for audio and video compression and transmission. MPEG has produced a number of digital media standards and the main standards of MPEG are:

  • MPEG-1 - Audio/video standards designed for digital storage media (such as an MP3 file).
  • MPEG-2 - Standards for digital television and DVD video.
  • MPEG-4 - Multimedia standards for the computers, mobile devices, and the web.
