For most conversion needs, I use Handbrake. It is free and available for OS X, Windows and Linux.

It handles a huge range of input and output formats, including reading MTS and outputting MP4.

There is a step by step guide that walks you through the GUI settings (it is for Mac, but the same principles apply on other OSes).

If you are using a Windows OS, have a look at iPodME, which is a small and elegant utility. I use iPodME for converting M2TS (AVCHD) files to MP4 files playable by iPhone and Android regularly with excellent results.

iPod Media Encoder converts video into an iPod-compatible format, the easy way.

As I was bored with the already existing converters like Videora, Xvid4PSP etc, I made this simple & efficient video converter. The profiles should be easy enough to figure, keeping in mind that slower encoding also means better video quality.

The new video files are created by default in the same folder as iPodME.


  • small (4 Mb), no setup, only 1 exe to put where you want, no codecs needed
  • based on ffmpeg
  • really easy to use and straighforward
  • easy batch encoding, just select multiple files by clicking on the “add files” button or drag’n drop them into the list
  • you can add new files to the batch during encoding
  • run in background without disturbing your work (with the defaut priority option)
  • 6 profiles adapted to most usage : 3 encoding speed, each optimized for file size or video quality
  • possibility to customize the encoding options
  • support soft-subtitles, and multiple subtitles per video
  • support multiple CPU cores automatically
  • can shutdown your computer after encoding
