You may not be aware of the .mcg file format. Don’t worry even I wasn’t till yesterday. It is something different from the popular .mpg file-format. But the amazing thing is, even it is used for storing audio & video files. MCG File-format is a Compressed CD+G Karaoke File. But it is also used as a DX-Client Backup File. It is widely used for storing CCTV Footages. The DVR (Digital Video Recorder) used along with CCTV Cameras records the footages & saves it in the .mcg format. There are 3 methods with which you can Open & Play an .mcg file.
