MOV is the most widely used format for Mac users. Apple created this digital container for video and other multimedia files, and it has become more and more popular so that you can get videos in this format from everywhere. For example, the output video will be in this format if you edit videos using the built-in apps on Mac, such as iMovie and Final Cut Pro. Besides that, some professional digital cameras set MOV as the default format of the videos they take. 

However, MOV is not perfectly compatible with all devices and apps, especially some old ones. For instance, it's hard to enjoy a MOV video with an old-fashioned VCD player. In this situation, you can convert the MOV video to MPG, a format that works well with those devices. How to convert MOV to MPG on different devices? This post will give you the answer.
