what's the difference between dat file and mpeg file

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Basically video CD are made based on mpeg-1 format. But why those cd don't have the movie files simply in mpeg format, instead, they only have the files in video data format. What's the difference between these two? I have mpeg play which doesn't support video data file. So how can I covert video data into mpeg file?
