Convert MPG to WMV 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.

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a common and widely supported video format. It compresses the file size with a codec resulting in an easy-to-manage file that maintains the quality of the video. A digital container format, called Advanced Systems Format (ASF), often encapsulates WMV files.
Most media players can open and read WMV (and ASF) files. The best player for opening a WMV file is Microsoft Windows Media Player. Microsoft developed WMV and ASF, and many videos online today are WMV files. VLC media player is another reliable option, which can play multimedia files across several platforms.
WMV is also easy to convert to other video file types. However, keep in mind that the conversion process might cause picture quality to decrease. If a conversion is needed, then HandBrake is a free and open-source tool for converting WMV files.
