Convert MTS to WMV 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.

Windows Media Video (WMV) is a common and widely supported video format. It compresses the file size with a codec resulting in an easy-to-manage file that maintains the quality of the video. A digital container format, called Advanced Systems Format (ASF), often encapsulates WMV files.
Most media players can open and read WMV (and ASF) files. The best player for opening a WMV file is Microsoft Windows Media Player. Microsoft developed WMV and ASF, and many videos online today are WMV files. VLC media player is another reliable option, which can play multimedia files across several platforms.
WMV is also easy to convert to other video file types. However, keep in mind that the conversion process might cause picture quality to decrease. If a conversion is needed, then HandBrake is a free and open-source tool for converting WMV files.
