MPG, which stands for Audio Video Interleave, is a Container format used by Microsoft’s Video for Windows multimedia framework. It is widely used by consumers and even supported by some standalone DVD players. If you attempt to import your MPG files to iTunes (iTunes 12.1), and possibly sync them to your iDevices later, you are not going to get what you want.
