Convert M2TS to MOV online, for free.
M2TS is a container file format for Blu-ray and Advanced Video Coding High Definition (AVCHD). It is a proprietary digital video and movie file type that usually consists of encrypted content on Blu-ray disks for consumer use. It also supports streaming content over the Internet.
Several options are available for opening M2TS. On Windows, use VLC media player, or Picture Motion Browser Software. On Linux or Mac OS X, use VLC media player. M2TS supports chapters, captions, subtitles, metadata tags, and menus.
If problems arise in opening M2TS, then drop the “2” from the file extension to make it MTS. For additional details, refer to the instructions in the first “Note” on this page on LifeWire.com. Another solution is to update your software to the latest release. This should solve any compatibility problems.

Apple QuickTime (MOV) is a container that can hold various types of multimedia files, including 3D and virtual reality (VR). It is known for being useful for saving multimedia files to a user’s device. One of its defining features is that it stores data in movie “atoms” and “tracks” that makes highly-specific editing of the files possible.
By default, a MOV file opens with QuickTime. If the MOV file is Version 2.0 or earlier, then it can open with Windows Media Player, but more-recent versions will not open in this player. If unable to open a MOV file with QuickTime, then use VLC media player, which works across many platforms, including mobile.
Note that two other file types also use the MOV extension. They are AutoCAD AutoFlix and ROSE Online. These file types are unrelated, with one being obsolete and the other related to an online game. Apple did not develop these technologies and they do not open in QuickTime.
