What is M2TS?
M2TS a.k.a. MPEG-2 Transport Stream is a video container format that stores HD videos on a Blu-ray disk, AVCHD, hard drive, and other devices. Since it is commonly used for HD videos in Blu-ray discs and AVCHD, M2TS is also known as BDAV (Blu-ray Disc Audio-Video). It is a great format that hosts high-quality video, audio, and data.
You will often find video files with the M2TS file extension if you have ripped off a Blu-ray disc. You can play M2TS videos on any media player on your computer. You can play M2TS files on Windows Media Player, VLC, Sony Picture Motion Browser, Splash, and other popular media players.
Some of these apps might need an audio codec or video codec to play M2TS videos. Most of these media player apps do not work on Mac, so you will have to use a VLC player to play M2TS files on Mac.
Yet, if you are an iPhone user, you won't be able to play M2TS videos. Why? iOS doesn't support M2TS videos on its devices, surprise! It only supports MOV, MP4, and M4V. So, you'll need an M2TS to MP4 converter app. This will help you convert M2TS to MP4 (MPEG-4) in order to play an M2TS video natively on your iPhone.
And what about MP4?
MP4, also known as MPEG-4, is a multimedia container format used to host video, audio, and other textual data such as subtitles and cover images. MP4 is the most used video and audio format in the world. It's the format for movies, TV shows, video songs, etc. Because of this, MP4 is available for all the major media players. VLC, KMPlayer, QuickTime, Media Player Classic, and others support MP4 with no problem.
iOS also supports MP4 files. So if you have an M2TS file on your PC and you can convert it into an MP4 output format and send it to your iPhone.
