I recently bought myself a HD camcorder as I will be going on holidayto Malta soon for a family wedding. I got the camcorder abit early so I could have a chance to play around with it and practice editing the clips, the camcorder records the clips in a .MTS format which is a High-definition MPEG Transport Stream video format, commonly called “AVCHD;” used by Sony, Panasonic, and other HD camcorders; based on the MPEG-2 transport stream and supports 720p and 1080i HD video formats.

Most camera’s come with software that allows you to play back those types of file formats as most video players cant, the software supplied with the camera was called “cyberlink powerDVD” which I havent used before and after playing wih it I think its a really good bit of software. Anyway there are hundreds of players out there capable of playing the MTS format so its up to you which one you want to use.

The main purposes of me taking the camera to Malta is to have the experience on film so I can always look back at it in years to come. The one thing I wanted to do with the clips I take is merge them into one and edit out the boring parts so the video is easier to watch and not so long. It took me a little while to find “AVS video editor 4″ which was the type of software I was looking for, you can try there free “review” copy which allows you access to the main features but when you save the video the software displays its logo in the center of the screen throughout the video. The software costs something like $56 for lifetime access and $46 for yearly access, if you do decide to get a copy go for the lifetime one as there’s not much difference in price.

Anyway that concludes “What is What is MTS file format”, and feel free to leave a comment or try out the software I have mentioned.
