How to convert M2TS to MKV, AVI, MPEG, MP4, MOV, etc?


People nowadays like using AVCHD camcorders to record all the precious moments in their lives, like children’s childhood, birthday and wedding party,graduation ceremony, all sorts of festivals, etc, so as to keep memory of these special times. However, since MTS/M2TS clips from AVCHD camcorders can’t be played by popular players like QuickTime and many other portable devices like iPhone, iPod, BlackBerry, etc, or supported well by some old version video editors, like iMovie, or directly uploaded to video sharing websites, etc. people have to use third party software to convert MTS and M2TS files to other available media formats. In purpose of solving this problem, this post will instruct you how to convert MTS/M2TS files to other popular video formats like AVI, MP4, MOV, MKV, FLV, etc. on Mac OS(Snow Leopard is included) step by step.

What is M2TS? A M2TS file is a Sony high definition video file type. M2TS files are raw AVCHD videos recorded using Sony's camcorders, such as the HDR-SR1 and HDR-SR5 models. Panasonic, Canon and other brands of AVCHD camcorders also record in M2TS format.

Currently, M2TS files can be played using the Picture Motion Browser, which is an application video player provided with Sony AVCHD camcorders. M2TS files can also be played with Mplayer, Windows Media Player and other media players if there is a codec for DVD playing installed. But the file type .M2TS is not always automatically associated with the player, so it may be necessary to open it from the player. That's to say, it's not convenient to play and enjoy your M2TS video.

How to get AVC HD M2TS files off HD Video camera/camcorder?
With AVC HD camcorders, you typically need to connect the HD video camera to your PC using a USB cable. Once connected and powered on, the camcorder should appear on the desktop as a new disk. The location of the films on the camcorders disk will vary depending on manufacturer. It is desirable that you copy the movies to your PC's hard-drive before converting or editing it.

How to Play AVCHD M2TS Files?
Each of the AVCHD camcorders ships with software designed to playback the files on your computer. Sony's HDR-SR1 and the newer HDR-SR5 both record video in the AVCHD format and ship with the Picture Motion Browser, which plays back AVCHD files on most computers. If you purchased one of the Panasonic AVCHD camcorders, the included HD Writer should allow you to playback video recorded with your camcorder.
