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.
Videos recorded by HD Camcorder are in the form of AVCHD with the file extension as ".MTS", but iPad (iPad Mini, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad Air) restricts the video formats to MPEG-4 and H.264. In order to play MTS video on iPad, you'd better turn to a helpful iPad converter to convert MTS to iPad 4/Mini/Air.
In brief, MTS format is a currently booming high-definition (HD) video format mainly applied in HD camcorder such as Sony, Canon, Panasonic and JVC. To be more specific, being a file extension for AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) video, MTS generally adopts H.264 video coding and AC-3 audio coding, and supports 1080i and 720p, in full HD standard 1920 x 1080/1440 x 1080 for resolution.
MTS and M2TS are both file extensions for HD digital video camera recorder format - AVCHD, and both support 720p and 1080i HD video formats. They are, nevertheless, slightly different. M2TS refers to the stream packaging container for Blu-ray BDMV, the file extension of which is "m2ts" having a five-digit number.
To put it simply, the file extension of AVCHD video is "MTS" on camcorder and "M2TS" after being imported to computer, namely, MTS is the format not collected by specific software, and will turn into the video file with "m2ts" as the file extension after collection. But generally speaking, there is no significant difference between MTS and M2TS.
With the overwhelming trend of digital popularity and innovation, the advanced digital devices like HD camcorder and iPad are owned by more and more people and families. However, due to the format limitation (allowing for MP4 and H.264 only) of iPad, camera HD video AVCHD MTS video has to be converted so as to be acceptable by iPad.
The principle of converting AVCHD MTS video to iPad 4, iPad 3 is actually to decode MTS, in other words, decode MTS after encoding, and then transform into other formats.
