MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 are *not* simply different versions of the same standard.
They are two *different* formats, designed to solve *different* problems.
MPEG-1 is optimized to compress solid-image video like what you get on a
computer, while MPEG-2 is optimized to compress interlaced-image video such
as is found on television broadcasts.  You could use MPEG-2 to compress your
IRTC entry, or MPEG-1 to compress a videotape, but the compression would be
far from ideal.
