MPEG abbreviation stands for Moving Picture Experts Group. They specialize in the development of video and audio encoding standards. Their standards include such file formats as .mpg, .mpeg, .m1v, .mp2, .mp3, .mpa, .mpe, .mpv2, .m3u. The MPEG compression methods are considered asymmetric as the encoder is more complex than the decoder.
The MPEG standards don't provide a lot of information on the structure and operation of encoder. This gives space for competition among encoder developments, which results into better designs and a greater choice for users, because encoders of different cost and complexity can co-exist and a compliant decoder works with all of them.
