What is MPEG?

MPEG (Moving Pictures Expert Group) is a body of industry experts that sets standards in the field of audio and video. Working together since 1988, they have defined many of the codec and container formats that are used in video production and the streaming products and processes that Wowza® Media Systems supports. Examples include H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10), MPEG-TS, and more recently the H.265 and the MPEG-DASH standards.
