How to Convert Camcorder AVCHD MTS/M2TS Video Files on Mac

Have captured lots of video clips with your HD camcorder during a trip, a party or a family get-together? Don't you want to recall the best moments on your mobile device and take them on the go? However, camcorders like Sony, Canon and Panasonic record video in AVCHD (MTS/M2TS) format. It is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. The default media player from Apple (QuickTime) will not play AVCHD video natively. Besides, you cannot directly transfer AVCHD video to your portable device for playback either. So what's the solution?

What you only need is a converter that will go from AVCHD MTS/M2TS to common video formats such as MP4, MOV, FLV, 3GP. The Clone2Go Video Converter for Mac comes to the rescue! It fully supports converting AVCHD files recorded with HD camcorders without lossy quality.
