Guide: How to playback avchd camcorder recorded .mts videos on iPad

As what I have said above, .mts can not be directly played on iPad, an alternative way is to convert mts to iPad supported video formats, m4v, mov or mp4 first, then use itunes to sync the converted .mts to your iPad. Some other app video player software on mac store may also works, but mts itself is huge and over 10GB in size, so it is very possible to recopress .mts to other video formats. the merits of conting mts to mov lies in its smaller video size and output video quality almost the same as the source AVCHD MTS that beyond eyes can identify.

Here I show u how to convert MTS to MOV for example on windows (on mac os x, the software operating steps same as windows)

Step 1. Free download MTS to MOV Converter for windows from the above downloading link, then have it installed on your computer.
