Convert MTS to MP4 online, for free.
MPEG Transport System (MTS) is the file type that high-definition (HD) camcorders produce when they capture video and audio. Sony and Panasonic developed MTS, but Canon, JVC, and other camcorders also create MTS files. This file type is also compatible with Blu-ray, and another designation for MTS is Advanced Video Coding High Definition (AVCHD).
MTS is a standard and common file type for camcorders and Blu-ray. As such, simply double-clicking the file opens it on almost any OS, including mobile. Examples of programs that permit playback of MTS are Windows Media Player, Apple’s Final Cut Pro, and VLC media player.
Sometimes MTS files are large, making them difficult to manage and store. To reduce the file size, simply convert the MTS file to MP4. Cnet.com lists several options for downloadable file converters.

MPEG-4 (MP4) is a container video format that can store multimedia data, usually audio and video. It is compatible with a wide range of devices and operating systems, using a codec to compress file size, resulting in a file that is easy to manage and store. It is also a popular video format for streaming over the Internet, such as on YouTube. Many consider MP4 to be one of the best video formats available today.
MP4 files open in the operating system's default video player. Simply double-clicking the file opens it. There is no need for third-party software. On Windows, it opens in Windows Media Player. On Mac, it opens in QuickTime.
On some devices, particularly mobile, opening this file type can be problematic. MP4 is a container that contains various kinds of data, so when there is a problem opening the file, it usually means that data in the container (an audio or video codec) is not compatible with the device’s OS. To resolve this issue, try VLC media player.
