Knowledge about MPEG
MPEG-1: It is a standard for lossy compression of video and audio, which designed to compress VHS-quality raw digital video and CD audio, making video CDs, digital cable/satellite TV and digital audio broadcasting (DAB) possible.
MPEG-2: It is a combination of lossy video compression and lossy audio data compression methods, which permit storage and transmission of movies using currently available storage media and transmission bandwidth.
