How to Convert Camcorder MOD TOD M2TS to AVI MP4 FLV
Nowadays, more and more families own digital camcorders such as JVC GZ-X900, Panasonic HDC-TM350, SDR-SW21, Canon FS200, Sony HDR-XR100 etc. With these camcorders, we can store many wonderful and memorable scenes.
These camcorders usually record the video as MOD, TOD or AVCHD (M2TS, MTS) video files. All of these files are high definition videos, with perfect video quality. Only one thing for regret - so little devices can support these HD (High-definition) camcorder videos. Normally, you can only play camcorder videos directly from a camcorder on a HDTV with a HDMI, or burn onto DVD disc, then play from Blu-ray Disc player, or play on a computer from the camcorder connected via USB as an external storage device.
