Why convert .MOV files to .MPG files

MOV files were created by Apple, are associated with the application Quicktime and often times use the MPEG-4 codec for compression. They were built as a cross-platform format, meaning they can be played on many Mac and Windows applications. MOV files are one of the few container formats that support alpha channel, or transparency.

The video container format MPEG, written MPG back when Windows could only handle 3 letter file extensions, is abbreviated from Motion Picture Experts Group. Video compression formats MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 are generally used, with resolutions up to 720i, which has now been superseded by MPEG-4 Part 2, which is stored in the container format MP4.

While it is possible to convert from MOV to MPG, MPG files are rare these days, with a maximum resolution of 720i, and you should consider converting instead to MP4, MOV or AVI as these other file types are far more universally supported.

NOTE: It's important to distinguish between file container formats and compression formats, or codecs. For example, MP4 is a container, and can hold different types of video compression, for example, MPEG-2 Part 2, MPEG-4 AVC, or HEVC, as well as audio (again compressed in a variety of formats) and metadata (for example subtitles). Some codecs can be wrapped in multiple different containers. Containers are sometimes referred to as file extensions, e.g. MOV, MP4, or AVI, but it's important to remember that there can be different types of video within these file formats.
