Most video camcorders require a post processing step to save the recorded video on your computer. The post processing step is very compute intensive for high compression formats like AVCHD which requires at least a dual-core workstation to do the processing. Enter the MPEG movie mode - MPEG movie mode allows the camcorder to directly store the captured video into the shareable MPEG video format. MPEG being a more versatile format results in smaller video file sizes which can then readily be shared on youtube and even email.The downside to storing in MPEG format is that this is a lossy compression format and compromises your video resolution for achieving a smaller file size.

The best camcorders with mpeg movie mode are often the smaller pocket/consumer camcorders with SD card storage formats which offer versatility to take shoots in different situation and quickly share online.
