Thread: mpe, or not mpe? That is the question.

    Default mpe, or not mpe? That is the question.

    Hi,

    I hope someone may be able to help. I have a small problem with some mpe files. They're video clips from an advertising system in my business that I'd like to use online on social networking sites.

    The problem being, is that despite them being saved with mpe extentions they will not open. I have countless codecs installed on my PC and no software will open them. I've even tried video analysing software to determine the codecs used, with one result saying they are not valid MPEG files.

    Can anyone offer a suggestion as to how I may be able to use the video in these files?

    My thanks in advance.

    Actually - it is - but it's an Irfanview one.

    Indeed. Any combination of letters and numbers is a valid file extension.

    Whether it's recognised by your system is down to what software you have installed and what file extensions you have associated with what programs.
