How to Convert MTS to MPEG/MPG Format on Mac OSX / Windows

MTS is the file extension for the Advanced Video Codec High Definition, or AVCHD, video file type. Many camcorder manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic use this codec and the .mts file extension for the footage captured on their high definition camcorders. It really lets you down that MTS files can't work with many video programs and editing software. If you would like to use an MTS file in a program that does not have the ability to read the file, you will first need to run it through a third-party software that can read it and convert it to a standard video file type, such as MPEG.
