How to Play MPG in QuickTime?

Convert MPG to QuickTime MOV without Quality Loss on Mac and Windows

I have made some MPG files with my camera, but I can not transfer them to my Mac for playing in QuickTime. I checked Google forum and knew that I can try to convert MPG to MOV. How can I do the conversion from MPG to QuickTime most supported MOV?

QuickTime fails to open MPG files. What video converter can help me to convert the MPG files to QuickTime preferred MOV? Thanks a lot.

I checked Apple website and find that MPG is supported by Apple QuickTime, but why QuickTime does not support to open my MPEG-1 file with .mpg extension?

Files with .mpg extension are usually MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 files. Theoretically if you have updated your QuickTime to its newest version you can play almost all MPG files, but in practice, many users have failed to play their MPG files. There are many reasons for the failure, like corrupt MPG file, wrong file extension for the encoded format, un-properly encoded MPG file, etc, but among which the most possible reason for the failure is that your MPG is just the particular one that QuickTime neither like nor support. If QuickTime refuses to play your MPG file but you still want to play your MPG in QuickTime you can use a MPG to QuickTime converter to convert your MPG to QuickTime preferred MOV.

To get MPG converted to QuickTime preferred MOV with the high quality, most of users will choose Avdshare Video Converter for their conversion job.
