Red face How to play TS,MTS,M2TS files on Mac for free?

sponsored links

As we know, there are many HD players for Windows OS, but for Mac, it hard to find free players which support ts, mts and m2ts etc. Here I recommend two:

[B]1)VLC player[/B]

VLC player is a totally free program that you should already have on your Mac that plays oodles of different video and audio formats, far more than QuickTime and DVD player. It is available for a wide range of operating system, ranging from Linux to Windows, and of course, Mac OS X.

Download and run this application, choose FILE>OPEN FILE, select you VIDEO_TS folder, and that is OK! You can watch your video now:

Tips: Other available formats of VLC player:
MPEG (ES,PS,TS,PVA,MP3) ASF,WMV,WMA, AVI, DTS, AAC, AC3,DivX, mp3, ogg etc.

Free Download VLC Media Player

[B]2) Mplayer for Mac[/B]
MPlayer OS X is binary distribution of MPlayer (The Movie Player for Linux) and comes with native GUI in Mac OS X. After installation you can simply (by Drag Drop) play almost all 3ivx, DivX 3, 4, 5 and other codecs files in the window or full screen mode. Rendering of very nice antialiased text-based subtitles is also supported. Click the PLAY button and it will beigin to play:

[B]What is TS?[/B]

“TS” is the abbreviation of Transport stream. It is a communications protocol for audio, video, and data which is specified in MPEG-2 Part 1, Systems (ISO/IEC standard 13818-1)

[B]What is MTS and what is M2TS?[/B]

MTS and M2TS are included by AVCHD video. AVCHD (Audio and Video Compression for High Definition) is a high-definition and standard-definition recording format for use in digital tapeless camcorders.

[B]About AVCHD video[/B]

AVCHD (AVC-HD, AVC HD) video is recorded using the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video compression codec. Audio is stored in either compressed form (Dolby AC-3), or uncompressed form (multichannel PCM). Aside from recorded audio and video, AVCHD includes features to improve media presentation: menu navigation, slide shows and subtitles. The menu navigation system is similar to DVD-video, allowing access to individual videos from a common intro screen. Slide shows are prepared from a sequence of AVC still frames, and can be accompanied by a background audio track. Subtitles are used in some camcorders to timestamp the recordings.
