Mac AVCHD Joiner for Network Media Player with Lossless MTS Output
If you copy the AVCHD folder from HD camcorder to the external hard drive, you may notice that there is delay/pause between the playback of each file on HDTV while streaming .through Popcorn Hour C-200. It is the re-initialization pauses between each clip, and it even happens to most network media players like HDI Dune, Xtreamer Pro, AC Ryan PlayOn, TVIX,PS3 and so on.
To fix sequential playback pause between MTS files on Popcorn Hour C200, or say other media players, one of the solutions is to stitch/join the files together on PC or Mac. Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac (Windows users: Aunsoft Final Mate) is the perfect AVCHD video management software with lossless MTS support, keeping original quality.
Below is the quick guide for you to join and cut AVCHD files with Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac
Step 1. Import AVCHD footage to Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac.
Two ways to import AVCHD clips, from camcorder or from computer hard drive. When camcorder is connected to iMac/Macbook via USB cable, Final Mate for Mac will pop up a wizard and present the .mts or .m2ts files to you for selective download to the Camcorder tab. For files from computer, just go to the Resource tab and click the Add file path button to browse the folder with .mts or .m2ts files.
Step 2. Use lossless editing.
You can join and cut MTS files without re-encoding. Just select multiple files from the Camcorder tab or the Resource tab, drag and drop to timeline to create a single movie with several clips. Then the Mac AVCHD joiner for network media player will merge mts files into one file.
To cut MTS file, just click the Split button (the scissors icon) above the timeline, and the clip will be divided into two parts. Select the part you do not want to keep, and click the Delete button (the cross icon) to remove unwanted segment.
Step 3. Export MTS movie without any loss in quality.
Click the "Export" button, and then the OK button. The Mac lossless MTS joiner for PCH C-200 will start merging the mts files for playback on network media player with less second pause.
After a few seconds, you can store the video on your home server, NAS or external hard drive, and then Stream AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Networked Media Player Smoothly.
