I recently treated myself to a HD camcorder as I will be going to South Africa soon for vacation. I got the camcorder a bit early so I could have a chance to play around with it and practice editing the clips, the camcorder records the clips in .MTS format which is a High-definition MPEG Transport Stream video format, commonly called “AVCHD” used by Sony, Panasonic, and other HD camcorders. Generally, the file extension of AVCHD video is .MTS on camcorder and .M2TS after import to computer. I guess that if someone who have m2ts or other AVCHD videos, he or she would be frustrated that there are few devices which support m2ts video. Normally, you can only play your m2ts video directly from a camcorder on an HDTV with a HDMI, or play them on a Blu-ray Disc player. Why these videos do not play on my PC, laptop, iPod, iPhone or any other portable mp4 players? OK, Here below I will give you an example of how to convert HD, AVCHD (MTS/MT2S) videos to popular devices with iPhone 4.
Things you'll need
1. HD, AVCHD (MTS/MT2S) video files
2. Aneesoft iPhone 4 video converter

Step 2: Output Setting
After you finish video source setup, you can now select iPhone 4 MPEG-4 video in the drop-down box and specify a directory on your computer to save the output files. Different file formats result in different video compression rates. Bit rate refers to the number of bits processed per unit of time, the larger the number, the more bits processed and the better the quality. Resolution refers to the number of pixels handled by the device display.

In addition, I tell you more about HD formats
What is MTS and what is 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.
About AVCHD video
AVCHD (AVC-HD, AVC HD) video is recorded using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video compression codec. Audio is stored in either compressed form (Dolby AC-3), or uncompressed form (multichannel PCM). Aside from recorded audio and video, AVCHD includes features to improve media presentation: menu navigation, slide shows and subtitles. The menu navigation system is similar to DVD-video, allowing access to individual videos from a common intro screen. Slide shows are prepared from a sequence of AVC still frames, and can be accompanied by a background audio track. Subtitles are used in some camcorders to times**p the recordings.
