Ref :

MPEG usually refers to video, because MPEG layer 3 (the audio format)
is usually referred to as MP3. So media player can play most MP3 files
(though it's not very good at it).

For video MPEG, no it doesn't. I would just use Betaplayer for that :
http://betaplayer.corecodec.org/ grab the 0.096 "unstable" version
(it's *perfectly* stable ;-)

You can just use the desktop player to convert ("transcode") the MPEG
to windows media format if you prefer to use windows media on the PPC.
Look at the Sync section here for an idea where to check :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/windowsmobile/features.aspx

But I'd stick to the original MPEG to avoid degradation of the audio.
