AVCHD is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. Developed jointly by Sony and Panasonic, the format was introduced in 2006 primarily for use in high definition consumer camcorders. This format is highly compressed and is a type of MPEG-4 format. You may find it surprising that AVCHD camcorders can record to optical media such as DVD and Blu-ray. Thus you can easily burn an AVCHD video to DVD for playback on a home DVD player or PS3. Smaller file sizes are also one of the advantages of AVCHD, which means moving video footage from your Sony/ Panasonic AVCHD camcorder to a PC is faster. But after you have successfully transferred video clips to Mac, though, AVCHD cannot be read by the media player.
Most of the stream media players don’t support AVCHD video files at all, no matter for Windows or Mac users. To overcome this matter, a useful converter tool is in need. In this article, we’ll solve this problem in two different ways, online and by an AVCHD converting program.
