Convert MPEG to AIFF online, for free.
Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG) is a family of digital video file formats, as well as the name of the organization that developed the format’s standards. The file format employs sophisticated compression using codecs, producing small files of comparatively good quality. The MPEG file extension is most closely associated with the MPEG-1 format.
MPEG files almost always open in the operating system's default video player. On Windows, it opens in Windows Media Player. On Mac, it opens in QuickTime. It does not support chapters, captions, subtitles, metadata tags, or menus. It can stream over the Internet or play on a hardware player.
Sometimes, opening an MPEG file requires the use of third-party software, such as when an MPEG-2 video is part of the file. In this case, download a MPEG-2 video decoder (DVD decoder pack). If nothing else works, then try VLC media player.

Apple developed Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF) to store high-quality, digital-audio (waveform) data. Many professionals use it, particularly users of Apple platforms. It is lossless, which means there is no loss of quality or data from the original, but this also means that AIFF files take up more space. AIFF can locate loop point data and musical notes, which is useful for musicians.
Please note that if using an Android or non-Apple device, you will need to convert the AIFF file—likely to a MP3 file—in order to open it. Mobile Apple products open AIFF files without file conversion.
