How to Convert MTS Files to WMV Files for Mac OS X
I'm looking for a good program for iMac, preferably easy to handle, to convert .mts file from my Canon camcorder to .vob format so I can burn it on a blank DVD and then play on my home DVD player. I tried some of free mts converters in past days, but the result is terrible: an image composed of small squares.
MTS format are a kind of high-resolution video file type recorded by some HD digital video camcorders from Canon, Panasonic, Sony, JVC. MTS footages are crystal-clear, but you might have no clue about how to do those MTS files from SD card after you shooting them. They are not compatible with most of media player and video editing software. Anyone who is a fan of putting videos onto disc and watch on a standalone DVD player will understand that .mts is not a readable format by DVD disc. So, in order to get your MTS movie to playback on your home DVD player, you need to convert the .mts format into a format like .vob that your machine can recognize.
There is a rather simple trick to do that: using Video Converter for Mac. It is one of best conversion programs that makes it easy to convert your MTS files to VOB formats readable by disc. The program has an intuitive interface and is rather quick at converting MTS format and almost any other popular file formats (FLV, WMV, AVI, MP4, MOV...) that can then be played on a wide range of devices.
