How to Play and Edit Sony HDR MTS Videos on Mac (Including Snow Leopard)?

Since more and more people with Sony HDR series meet the problem to play camcorder videos on Mac OS X (or Snow Leopard), here I just want to share the best solution with those users who need it.

First, most popular models I collected are showed as below:

As we know, [B]Sony HDR videos[/B] are mainly [B]AVCHD [/B]or [B]AVCHD/MPEG-2 [/B]videos, while the file extension may be different. For example, [B]MPEG[/B] is the output format of [B]SDR-SR 12[/B] while [B]MTS[/B] is the output file of [B]Sony SDR-SR 10, Sony HDR-SR 11, Sony HDR-XR 100, Sony HDR-SR 5[/B], etc. [B]But[/B] these original videos from Sony camcorders can not be played and edited on Mac. [B]Therefore[/B], you have to convert them to MOV or MP4 workable to applications like [B]iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere,[/B] etc. with a powerful MTS video converter, like this one-[B]Moyea MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac[/B](*********** I am using now.

[B]Part 1. How to import Sony HDR MTS files into Mac ([/B][B]Snow Leopard[/B][B])[/B]

[B]First you should prepare a 4 pin or 6 pin cable, for most camcorders connect to Mac via a 4 pin cable end as well as a 6 pin end sometimes.[/B]
[B]Step 1[/B]. Set your camcorders to the right mode for importing photos and videos.
[B]Step 2[/B]. Local the 4 pin firewire port on your camcorders.
[B]Step 3[/B]. Take the other end of the firewire cable once the camcorders connected, and insert it into the firewire port on Mac. Only if both of cables are connected, you can turn on the power to your camcorder.
[B]Step 4[/B]. The Mac will launch iMovie automatically after a while. And then follow the on-screen instruction on it to begin transferring the videos from your camcorders to Mac.

[B]Part 2. How to convert Sony HDR MTS files on Mac[/B]
[B]Step 1. Free download and install Moyea MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac[/B](***********

[B]Step 2. Add the MTS files into this program by clicking the “Add” button[/B]
[B]Step 3. Set the optimized output format(MOV, MP4, AVI, WMV, MPEG-4, etc.) by clicking the “Format” drop-down list.[/B]
[B]Step 4. Selcet the destination folder by clicking the “Browse”[/B]
[B]Step 5. Start conversion.[/B]

Well done, you can freely and easily play and edit MTS on Mac after the whole process.

[B]Tips[/B]: Due to [B]Moyea MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac[/B](*********** professional, you can also convert the MTS to other popular video formats acceptable to [B]iPod, iPhone, PSP, Zune, PS3, Cell Phone[/B], etc. with ease. Moreover, those converted videos will never meet the audio/video issues for its [B]advanced audio and video synchnization[/B].

As far as I am concerned, the best software for converting video files on mac os is [b]Moyea Video Converter for Mac[/b]. It is said that it supports any videos conversion on Mac and newly released Mac OS Snow Leopard. It runs very fast, which saves users much time to do other things while converting videos. Moreover, its output video satisfies me. Thus, I hope it also does a good job for you guys when you need it.
When choosing a video converter, I always pay more attention to its conversion speed.
Because I do not want to waste much time converting lots of my videos. To meet my requirements, I searched many video converters and last I just hold that [b]Moyea Video Converter[/b] is the one that runs very fast and steadily till it finishes the whole conversion.
