Relations/Differences of TS, MTS and M2TS
TS file extension stands for Transport Stream, and M-TS stands for M-PEG Transport stream. TS is a well-known communications protocol for audio, video, and data etc. It is specified in MPEG2 Part 1, Systems (ISO/IEC standard 13818-1). The file extension .ts is a perfect container format to encapsulate packetized elementary streams.
All TS, MTS and M2TS are files associated with AVCHD (a new HD camcorder format) which is compressed using MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 standard, which compresses the video without losing that much quality. m2ts, mts, m2t and ts are all Transport Streams of MPEG2 container format. The M2T or TS are introduced for broadcast systems and uses 188-byte packets, later extended for HD camcorders with an added 4 byte time code and we got M2TS/MTS; i.e. M2TS/MTS is using 192-byte packets. They are currently being used in Blu-ray Discs and HD digital video camera recorder format – AVCHD.
HD cameras/camcorders are becoming one essential part of people daily life. And usually we will make some recordings with some splitted clips or with one big one file. For smoothly playing and editing, we would like to join or split them. According my experience, there is not any software which focuses on combining or spliting AVCHD video files without decoding. Now i share a software called Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac which has one functions of combining and trimming and also you can get video files with .mts/.m2ts./.ts Hope it helps numerous HD camcorder owners.
