M2TS is a container file format for multiplexing audio, video and other streams. The M2TS container contains videos recorded using AVCHD camcorders, such as Sony's HDR-SR(xx)series models. Panasonic, Canon and other brands of AVCHD camcorders also store recorded video in M2TS container format. The M2TS container format used on AVCHD equipment is more restricted and can contain only H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video compression and Dolby Digital (AC-3) audio compression or uncompressed LPCM audio.
Currently, M2TS files can be played using the Picture Motion Browser, which is an application video player provided with Sony AVCHD camcorders. M2TS files can also be played with Mplayer, Windows Media Player and other media players if there is a codec for DVD playing installed. But the file type .M2TS is not always automatically associated with the player, so it may be necessary to open it from the player. That's to say, it's not convenient to play and enjoy your M2TS video.
