About AVCHD MTS, M2TS
AVCHD, produced by Sony and Panasonic, is a file-based format for the digital recording of high-definition video. Camcorders save recorded video and other files like thumbnail, clip information, playlist, etc in a folder structure very similar as Blu-ray. Usually, the AVCHD video file has extension of .mts or .m2ts, and saved in /PRIVATE/AVCHD/BDMV/STREAM folder. If you record a long video, the camcorder will split your video into several .mts files. You may want to join them into one file before sharing the video.
