I have hundreds of home movies in MPEG-2 format. They run on pretty much every platform I have ever had (pick a MS SW version) and I have used them to burn DVDs. I understand Windows 8 RT does not play MPEG-2 but other video download apps (like YXplayer RT and Mobile.HD) advertise they play MPEG. They don't. I have sent emails to MS and to the YXPlayer vendors but get static. Anyone out there have MPEGs that work on Surface? If so, what app are you using? I feel like I wasted $9 downloading YXPlayer but then again it had a 1-star rating.
