What is MTS file?
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.
When you record video footage by an AVCHD digital camcorder, the captured footage appears as an MTS video file, a format most media players and video-editing programs don't recognize.
