The mjpeg file extension is typically related and used for special animated pictures in Motion JPEG file format.

Motion JPEG is a sub-category of motion video codecs where successive frames are encoded using the standard JPEG algorithm.

No interframe compression is performed and the resulting encoded data generally does not achieve the same level of compression as a codec using interframe techniques.

However, decompression is usually faster and any frame can be referenced independently since there are no dependencies on other frames. Plus, there are fewer legal caveats when using the open JPEG standard.
