From this table, we note that MPEG files can be accepted by all versions of Windows Media Player. Let's see the detailed information about Windows Media Player supported MPEG file types:

Files that use .mpg or .mpeg extensions typically are MPEG-1 system streams that contain MPEG-1-encoded video and MPEG-1 Layer II (MP2)-encoded audio. However, MPEG-1 system streams do not exclusively use the .mpg and .mpeg extensions. MPEG-2 program streams also frequently use .mpg and .mpeg file extensions, but they contain MPEG-2-encoded video.

Because Microsoft Windows operating systems provide only an MPEG-1 video decoder, Windows Media Player cannot play MPEG-2 program streams without an additional MPEG-2 video decoder (also known as a DVD decoder pack) installed.

So, if your MPEG file does not play on Windows Media Player, it may be encoded with the MPEG-2 standard. Next part will show three solutions to fix the MPEG and Windows Media Player incompatibility issues. Check them out.

Solution 1: Install A Codec Pack

1. Windows Media Player codec packs that give Media Player the capability to play both MPEG-2 and MP4 files include Media Player Codec Pack 3.9, Windows Essentials Media Codec Pack and K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. You can also download DVDdecoder plug-ins for Windows Media Player, which can be used to play MPEG-2 files, on the Windows website for a fee.

2. Click the setup file when it appears in the “Downloads” window of your web browser. If the “Downloads” window doesn’t come up, navigate to the “Downloads” folder on your hard drive, which can be found at “Start>Computer> Local Disk(C: )>Users>[username]>Downloads,” replacing “[username]” with the name of the user that was signed into the computer when the codec pack was downloaded. Double-click the setup file for the codec pack in the downloads folder.

3. Follow the on-screen setup to unpack the Windows Media Player codecs from the codec pack. On the first screen of the codec pack setup, choose “Easy Installation” and then agree to the license agreement. The codecs install to the computer, and are automatically added to Windows media Player.

4. Launch Windows Media Player. Go to “File>Open,” go to the folder where the MPEG video that you want to play is located, and double-click the video file to open in Windows Media Player. Once the codec pack is installed, the files should play like any other video file.

Solution 2: Use VLC Media Player

VLC is a free program that will allow you to play DVDs and other type of media files including MPEG. Download VLC Media player in your web browser and then install it step by step. After installation, you can try VLC to play MPEG files at your will.
