Since right now when I want to share my avchd recordings, I always need a avchd converter to convert avchd to youtube supported videos, then they'll allow me uploading avchd to youtube."

If you are a HD camcorder user, you must be quite familiar with AVCHD video file (.mts/.m2ts extension), because AVCHD video is the dominant HD format for camcorder recording and playback. Apart from playing back AVCHD video on computer, we may also want to upload AVCHD video to YouTube so that everyone can appreciate the brilliant recording on YouTube. However, YouTube might be unable to accept AVCHD videos. We need to convert AVCHD videos first.

How to Convert and Upload AVCHD Video to YouTube?

Recommended solution: Winxvideo AI.

It converts AVCHD video to YouTube playable formats like MP4, FLV and WebM. It outputs YouTube available video with favorable high definition quality in the shortest time.

Part 1. What You Should Know Before Converting and Uploading AVCHD to YouTube Video

1. YouTube supported video formats

MP4, WebM files (VP8 video codec and Vorbis audio codec), MPEG4, 3GPP and MOV files - (typically supporting h264 and MPEG4 video codecs and AAC audio codec), WMV, FLV (Adobe - FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio), AVI (many cameras output this format - typically the video codec is MJPEG and audio is PCM), MPEG-PS (typically supporting MPEG2 video codec and MP2 audio).

Winxvideo AI can convert AVCHD MTS/M2TS video to all the video formats above for uploading to YouTube except MPEG-PS.

2. The lengths of audio and video should be the same.

To ensure viewers can experience a delightful HD video enjoyment, YouTube requires that your uploaded AVCHD video must match with its audio.

And Winxvideo AI, equipped with Force A/V Sync function in "Safe Mode", can guarantee you the smoothest AVCHD video playback process. The audio recordings could perfectly match up with video shootings.

3. YouTube prefers de-interlaced files (quite important).

Since the video recorded by AVCHD camcorders, except for AVCHD Lite (720p) models, is 1080p interlaced one, the converting software you use must have De-interlacing Engine internally. This way you can pretend your AVCHD video on YouTube as clear as the original one, or you will encounter a vague look as the "Before De-interlaced" one in the figure.

Winxvideo AI happens to be this one. Embedded with advanced De-interlacing Engine, it can fully support converting AVCHD video from interlacing to progressive scanning, bringing you about more vivid and smooth image.

4. YouTube recommends 16:9 for upload

The standard aspect ratio for YouTube on a computer is 16:9. When uploading other aspect ratios such as vertical or square, the player automatically adapts itself to the size of the video. So you'd better convert your video to 16:9 widescreen before you upload.
