    Is it MPEG-2 or MPEG-1

    windsurfertx
      I am doing videos for our local municipal TV station. The equipment requires that the shows be encoded to MPEG-2 settings. OK, so I made the settings in premiere pro CS3 to be Mpeg-2 and got the encoded file which windows explorer shows only as MPG file type. (Windows explorer apparantly will not show the distinction between MPEG-1 and MPEG-2) I then burned a disk with the encoded file and took to the station director who is using an apple computer. His apple (Mac) shows that the file was not MPEG-2 but rather an MPEG-1.

      How can I check that the resultant encoded file is indeed an MPEG-2?
      If it is indeed MPEG-1 instead of MPEG-2 then how did it get to be a 1 instead of a 2 which I clearly told it to be a MPEG-2?

      Thanks,
