Q: I recently bought a new camcorder Canon HF100 as I would go to Bali for vacation. I got the camcorder a little bit early so I could have a chance to play around with it. But I found the video recorded by my camcorder as .mts cannot be played on my iPad, instead, can be played on my desktop computer (Windows Vista Home Edition). How to figure it out? I hope someone can help.
