How to convert TOD/MOD from JVC Camcorder to MP4, AVI, MOV, etc. on Mac OS?

Do you have a JVC camcorder? If the answer is yea-saying, you must be familiar with the MOD and TOD files. However, I also suppose that you must have encountered some troubles caused by the two formats more or less. This article will tell you what are MOD and TOD, and how to convert MOD and TOD files generated by JVC camcorders on Mac.
Below are its main 4 parts and I am going to demenstrate it.
[b]Part 1: What are MOD and TOD formats[/b]
[b]Part 2: The difference between MOD and TOD[/b]
[b]Part 3: How to convert MOD or TOD to common video files on Mac OS for further enjoyment on iPod, iPhone, PSP, etc.[/b]

[b]Part 1: What are MOD and TOD formats[/b]
In order to meet people’s different kinds of requirements in video recording, camcorder manufacturers have developed numerous types of camcorders. However, the recorded formats produced by these camcorders are various and special, and are not widely accepted by Mac or most portable devices we often use in daily life; therefore, these formats usually bring some troubles to camcorder users, MOD and TOD are the two formats among them.
Both MOD and TOD are the informal tapeless video formats produced by certain digital camcorders. And both of them have never been given to any meaning explanations or official names by their creators JVC or Panasonic.

[b]Part 2: The difference between MOD and TOD[/b]
[b]1、[/b]MOD are used by JVC, Panasonic, and Canon in some models of camcorders, such as JVC GZ-MG130, GZ-MS100U, GZ-MG255, Panasonic SDR-SW20, SDR-SW21, SDR-S26, Canon FS100, FS200, FS21 and so on, while TOD is only used by JVC camcorders, like JVC GZ-HD7, GZ-HD5, GZ-HD6, GZ-HD30, and GZ-HD40
[b]2、[/b]MOD is only used for standard definition video files, while TOD is exclusively used for high definition video files.

[b]Part 3: How to convert MOD or TOD to AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV, 3GP, MP4, FLV, etc. on Mac OS for further enjoyment on iPod, iPhone, PSP, etc.[/b]
