“Today, I record some videos for my family picnic with Sony camera. When I go home, I transfer the videos to my computer in order to share with my grandfather. But I can't play M2TS video because my computer doesn't support playback. I want to know how to change the videos’ format so that I can play M2TS files on the computer. And at the same time, I hope that the picture will not be blurred after the video conversion. Is there anyone can help me?”
As we all know, M2TS is a filename extension used for the Blu-ray Disc Audio-Video (BDAV) MPEG-2 Transport Stream (M2TS) container file format. The BDAV container with filename extension .mts or .m2ts is also used in AVCHD format, which is a high definition digital video camera recorder format.
In other words, we can’t play M2TS on computer, TV, iPhone/Android devices directly.
There are 2 solutions to solve this problem. One solution is using HD Video Player software to play M2TS file on the computer. Another solution is converting M2TS to MP4, MKV, AVI or other formats and then play these commonly used video formats on phone devices and computer easily.
In the next part, we will show you how to convert M2TS file to MP4 on the computer.
In this part, you will get a free and easy to use tool---f2fsoft M2TS Converter can convert M2TS files to more than 150 file formats, such as it can convert M2TS to MKV, MP4, AVI, MOV and so on without quality loss.

As we mentioned before, M2TS files are HD videos. The normal size is more than 10GB, so it seems impossible for us to store serveral M2TS files on phone devices.
With the help of the M2TS to MP4 Converter, you can also customize the size, frame rate, bit rate of the audio and video. In most situation, the standard size of video uploading is 320*240pix. If the generated files are too big to upload, cutting the size down by setting a smaller video resolution would be a good choice.
Step1 Do the same thing as Step1 in the Part1.
Step2 Click Settings button on the bottom of the interface. Find Resolution, choose 204*160 and click OK button.
Step3 Click Clip button on the top of the interface and then a popup window will show up. You can drag the start point and end point to decide the video time on the interface; you also can preview the video to make sure the video content. Don’t forget to click OK button.
Step4 Click Edit a popup window will show up and then click Effect to adjust the audio effect and audio effects, such as Volume, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Hue. After finishing the adjustment, please click Apply.
Step5 Click Convert button to convert MTS to MP4.
