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.

Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC) is a file format that shrinks an audio file’s size, which, as the word “lossless” in the name implies, results in no loss in audio quality or original data. FLAC accomplishes this by using an algorithm that compresses the file to approximately 50 to 70 percent of its original size.
The default program for opening a FLAC file is VLC media player. Other details about FLAC include that it is unpatented, permits music reproduction, is compatible with Telephony Application Programming Interface (TAPI), and is not subject to digital rights management (DRM).
Additionally, codecs that can implement FLAC include FFmpeg, Flake and FLACCL for encoding, and Audiocogs for decoding. Lastly, as the word “free” in the name suggests, FLAC is open-source software.
