Tip & How-To about Cameras
Hi there I was looking for a media player to plug my hard drive into to
watch MKV files on my HDTV. I have been told the popcorn hour
A110 is very good so I bought a Popcorn Hour last week.now I found another problem,if I want to play the AVCHD m2ts files from Nikon D90 camcorders on my HDTV ,even I need to edit it before importting to my HDTV .how to do ?
If you use a stand-alone device like a HTPC, Popcorn Hour or a Western Digital player, you'll probably have better compatibility with the mkv container .here I would like to recommend you to try this m2ts to mkv converter.
Why need to convert m2ts to mkv? As we known,m2ts and mkv are both containers; they have no bearing on the amount of compression used.I believe an m2ts taken from a Blu-ray or AVCHD disk is going to be a bit bigger than an mkv with the same contents, because the m2ts contains extra file structure information that you don't need. Additionally, when repacking an m2ts into an mkv, people usually remove any audio streams they don't want. There's no point in keeping a French dub of an American film if you can't speak French. If you want to use a stand-alone device like a HTPC, Popcorn Hour or a Western Digital player, you'll probably have better compatibility with the mkv container.
Here gives you the efficient and easy tutorial for converting AVCHD M2TS to MKV video, You can import MTS/M2TS files for converting to files of other popular video formats for share.
Here is the step by step tutorial for the program:
Step 1: Get MTS/M2TS files from HD Video camera/camcorder to PC.
Connect the HD video camera/ camcorders to your PC with a USB cable. Once connected and powered on, the camcorder should appear on the desktop as a new disk. It is desirable that you copy the videos to your PC's hard-drive before converting or editing it.

All the conversion takes me 25 minutes with 700 M2TS videos and the conversion speed often depend on the original video site and your PC configuration. The conversion speed and output quality seem perfect, it is really worth to use this video converter to convert files from m2ts to mkv.
