How to Convert MTS footage to H.264/MPEG-4 MP4 formats
Now HDV becomes more and more popular. Sony/Canon/Panasonic, the leaders of the field of Digital image and video, are releasing so many 1080p/1080i High Definition AVCHD camcorders. Although the video format of most camcordes is widely known as AVCHD videos (MTS/M2TS file extension) with better quality videos but less space, owing to the high compress rate of this format, it is difficult for some common video editing programs or portable players to recognize and support them to edit and play.
