Tip & How-To about Sony Alpha DSLR-A580 Body Only Digital Camera
Xbox DLNA-AVCHD MTS/M2TS to Xbox 360 support formats on Windows 7
Generally, I have my video to be kept in a D-Link NAS box, so that I can watch them on Xbox. The NAS is quite old, and I will buy a home server similar to the HP models one day. Xbox has a "Windows Media Center" window in the dashboard view, and Xbox Streams videos from NAS via DLNA for HDTV.
However, the AVCHD files from my Sony DSC-TX100V could not read by Xbox. While looking for the solution to stream AVCHD videos to Xbox, I find Aunsoft Final Mate as the recommended AVCHD video converter and joiner with best quality. After dealing the AVCHD files with Final Mate on Windows 7 Premium, I can share the videos using Windows Media Center software for streaming.
Below is just a simple guide with AVCHD to Xbox supported format.
Step 1. Import AVCHD videos to Final Mate.
Run Final Mate as the best AVCHD to Xbox converter, and click the Add file path button on Resource tab to browse the folder with .mts or .m2ts files on PC hard drive. For videos from camera, just connect camera to PC via USB cable, and follow the pop-up wizard to import videos.
Step 2. Select and join AVCHD files for output.
Select the clips on Resource tab or Camcorder tab, drag and drop to the Movies tab. You can create a movie for each file or a movie with several files with conversion. For another movie, just click the Create New Movie button.
Step 3. Choose Xbox format.
Click the icon next to the Movie name in the Movies tab, you will see the format options. Move to the Device group, find Zune/Xbox 360 Device and choose Zune Xbox 360 - Windows Media Video(*.wmv) as output format.
Click Export button, and the conversion from AVCHD to Xbox 360 support format will start right away. Wait for a while, and put the videos to the video folder for sharing. Xbox 360 then can stream videos from the NAS via DLNA.
