The M2TS container format is a standard used on Blu-ray Video discs. Blu-ray Disc Video titles authored with menu support are in the BDMV (Blu-ray Disc Movie) format and contain audio, video, and other streams in BDAV container (.m2ts), which is based on the MPEG transport stream format. The BDAV container is also used in the BDAV (Blu-ray Audio/Visual) disc format, the consumer-oriented alternative to the BDMV discs. BDAV disc format is used on BD-RE and BD-R discs for audio/video recording. New version of Any Video/DVD Converter supports M2TS as output. It is a M2TS video converter, it can not only convert M2TS to various other video format, but also it can convert all your favorite videos to M2TS.
With new version of Any Video/DVD Converter Pro, it provides you "1 pass" (for normal quality) or "2 pass" (for best quality) to encode video for the mpeg2, mp4 and m2ts output formats. Two pass encoding produces much better results than one pass encoding. But there are certain disadvantages of this technique. Two pass coding is almost twice slower than one-pass coding. So if you are short of time select one-pass solution. But if you want the highest quality possible use two-pass encoding. The first pass estimates rate distortion characteristics of video using a first set of quantization parameters (often called just QPs). These estimated characteristics help to select quantization parameters for the second pass in order to minimize quality fluctuation between the frames.
