|How to open, play, edit and import mts/m2ts file on Mac OS X ?|
If you Google "how to play mts on Mac", you will get tons of information, but seldom of them really helps. This is at least what I got from the searching result. Here editor sort out several popular ways of playing, editing and converting mts/m2ts files on Mac and provide Mac users with real useful information.
What is MTS/M2TS ?
MTS and M2TS are included by AVCHD video. AVCHD (Audio and Video Compression for High Definition) is a high-definition and standard-definition recording format for use in digital tapeless camcorders. MTS is the format of rough AVCHD video clips, but when exporting onto computer, it becomes M2TS.
Can I use iMovie to play and edit AVCHD files on Mac ?
The answer depends on what version of your iMovie is. iMovie'06 doesn't support AVCHD Format, but iMovie'08 and Final Cut Pro (FCP)(6.0) can play and edit AVCHD files without any third party plug-ins.
What are the requirements for a Mac in order to work with AVCHD videos ?
AVCHD video requires a Mac with an Intel Core Duo processor or better. Visit iMovie'09 Camcorder Support for details on digital video device and format support. Pre-Intel (PPC) Macs won't handle them, neither will FCP.
How can I play/open AVCHD videos on Mac ?
There are several popular ways to play AVCHD videos. If your iMovie gives a full support to AVCHD files, you can directly watch AVCHD files on iMovie and FCP. If not, here are several free ways to play.
VLC player is a totally free program that you should already have on your Mac that plays oodles of different video and audio formats, far more than QuickTime and DVD player. It is available for a wide range of operating system, ranging from Linux to Windows, and of course, Mac OS X.
Mplayer for Mac
MPlayer OS X is binary distribution of MPlayer (The Movie Player for Linux) and comes with native GUI in Mac OS X. After installation you can simply (by Drag Drop) play almost all 3ivx, DivX 3, 4, 5 and other codecs files in the window or full screen mode. Rendering of very nice antialiased text-based subtitles is also supported.
What should I do if I want to convert mts files on Mac ?
Since mts/m2ts couldn't get a better support on Mac, why not converting them to a Mac friendly format such as MP4 or MOV? Lots of users know this, but their only worry is: what if they get a poor output result? There are lots of media converters on market which made choice even harder. Here we provide several to refer to.
Most Mac users had tried this commercial avchd converter for Mac. It converts AVCHD video on the market. The only thing is, it's really slow, and the export file is even larger and it takes too much space on your Mac.
