MPEG2

MPEG-2 is a standard for "the generic coding of moving pictures and associated audio informationIt describes a combination of lossy video compression and lossy audio data compression methods.While MPEG-2 is not as efficient as newer standards such as H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC, backwards compatibility with existing hardware and software means it is still widely used, for example in over-the-air digital television broadcasting and in the DVD-Video standard.
