Modifying the extension of a file may change the way which a program recognizes it, but will not change the underlying codec. MOD, MOV, and MPG files are all a product of the old MPEG or the MPEG-2 (DVD based) codec – no more, no less. DV (also known as DV-AVI) is a largely stored video format with very little loss – extension for this format is .AVI.

Depends on the version. Most version I’ve heard of support the MPEG-2 format, so you probably won’t have to worry unless your version is older than v. 4.
