Most camcorder today outputs videos with AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) Video. Since it is jointly developed by Sony and Panasonic, AVCHD video has been an effective way for storing HD videos for its high capability while occupying little of your hard drive space. Whereas, the problem is that most media players don’t support this video format. It is lucky for Windows 7 natively support AVCHD video, but if your PC is Windows XP or Windows Vista based, you are kind of misfortune. You may need a specific AVCHD media player to make your PC available for this video format or you have to install special registry patch which will tie M2TS/MTS files.
You can also refer to a third party AVCHD media player like VLC Media Player , for instance. However, you have to update VLC Media Player from time to time, otherwise the player will crash or have no images on the screen.
