Convert AVCHD M2TS/MTS files to other formats on Mac easily

I got a new Sony digital camera, and I am interested in taking good scenes. This holiday I have took some good videos about our family party. Well, I want to share the camera videos with my friends and family members, but i can't edit the videos on my Macbook because it's M2TS file which is a container file format for multiplexing audio, video and other streams(of course, I know this after searching the internet).

When I was busy searching a tool to convert the videos, a friend of mine recommended a very good AVCHD converter from iFunia helped me out of the hook. It's very easy to use, I don't need to be familiar with AVCHD Video Converter, video formats or settings - just run the AVCHD video converter, choose M2TS/MTS video, select a ready-made preset, and hit Start to convert M2TS/MTS videos. I collated some of the following simple practical steps, hope to help you.

Step 1. Source Setup
Download and run iFunia AVCHD Converter for Mac, and click Add… button to select AVCHD M2TS video files. You can preview and play your AVCHD video files, simply select a file which you want to preview in the Source File area and click Play button, you can also take snapshot at will to store the image you like.

Step 2. Destination Setup
After you finish video source setup, you can select your preferred video format from the Output format drop-down menu. Here i choose MOV-QuickTime Video File(*.mov) video, and click the folder icon to specify a directory on your computer to save the output files.

Step 3. Start Conversion
To start converting, click the Start button. The Progress bar shows the status of the converting task. iFunia AVCHD Converter prompts you when the converting task is completed, then click OK.

OK, that is so easy, all right? And here are some tips to help you:
1. There are various format/bit rate/screen resolution options in the Setting window.
2. Different file formats result in different video compression rates. Bit rate refers to the number of bits processed per unit of time, the larger the number, the more bits processed and the better the quality.
3. Resolution refers to the number of pixels handled by the device display.
