Moving or Motion?[edit]

One edit changed "moving" to "motion". The next cited a google search as authoritative (it's NOT!) and changed the name to motion/moving. So that everyone can trust i'm right, i'm going to cite two sources:

Both of them refer to the "Moving Pictures Experts Group" and are not ambiguous or unclear about it. I hope this clears things up. – Fudoreaper 04:28:20, 2005-09-02 (UTC)

Actually, those links refer to the "Moving Picture Experts Group" ("picture" is not plural). --Pangolin 17:37, 4 September 2005 (UTC)

And don't i feel like a fool now. Man. Thanks Pangolin, you're correct. – Fudoreaper 21:02:14, 2005-09-05 (UTC)

Request for addition of information to "How MPEG works" section[edit]

Could the use of the terms "frame", "granule" and "samples" be added to this section? This request arises from content of Scfsi and content of a glossary at User:Ceyockey (talk to me) 17:38, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Request for license information.[edit]

As far as I know you need a license to legally encode (record/create) MP3 (and probably other codecs as well). On the other hand a license is not necessary to decode (play) MP3 files. It would be great if someone could put some informaton about licensing regarding these encodings. Jarl Friis 18:33, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Hi everyone, I know a guy that did some early work with MPEG-1, but need to cite the work. Can anyone help? I'm sure he would oblige in expanding on "How MPEG works" in relation to the Video side of things, and I think audio too. Please see my userpage on the subject and the article I have in progress about the guy, and leave a message in my userspace.

Opening Graphic[edit]

The opening graphic gives an overly simplistic and misleading impression of the use and evolution of MPEG. As one example, MPEG-4 was used on the internet and BD before it appeared on satellite. It is suggested that a replacement graphic should be more generic and application-agnostic.algocu (talk) 18:11, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Removed section "Tools"[edit]

I removed a new section "Tools" added by user PaulBreadly, because it was not appropriate. This article is about Moving Picture Experts Group and not about video or audio converters or editors. There are other appropriate articles on Wikipedia about audio and video software - e.g. List of video editing software, Comparison of video editing software, Comparison of video encoders. The MPEG developed many audio and video standards and there are hundreds of various software applications that use them. User PaulBreadly added to his section "Tools" some shareware software and this contribution looks like an advertising.-- (talk) 14:51, 27 February 2010 (UTC)
