Description

MPG2 files are video files encoded with the MPEG-2 codec, a common video compression algorithm. They use lossy compression, meaning some quality may be lost in the compression process.

Since MPEG-2 is a common video codec, MPG2 files can be played by most video players. If a player will not open an MP2 file, it may recognize the file if you change the file extension to .MPG or .MP2.
