M2ts to mpeg1

PostBy: coalnewbie On: Wed Nov 10, 2010 11:49 am

My Canon HD20 make great video M2TS files that I can see with Windows 7 great. I wish to make a DVD (or just a file that I can email) of the same quality in say mpeg 1 or avi that looks as good. Most people can't handle M2TS. I am using Any Video Converter that converts it OK but it runs slowly (not the computer and I realize that rendering is a slow process) also the quality is suspect. Any ideas anyone. Is this AVS4you that is advertised on this forum any better.

Most likely NOT! :o Keep in mind I don't look over any of the ads.

Another free one is Super, haven't used recently but it has many options:

If you're interested Video Studio is probably your best bet if you want to purchase something:
http://www.corel.com/servlet/Satellite/ ... bview=tab0

There is free 30 day trial. You can make standard DVD's or Blu Ray with this complete with menus etc.


You can do more with that than the $500 editor I purchased about 6 years ago. :mad:

DVD's are generally written with MPEG2 Program Stream data. MPEG2TS (transport stream) is very similar. The only conversion that should be necessary is a downres (a lossless process if you have a re-quantizing transcoder, found in many popular DVD authoring tools) and a repacketizing to program stream. It should be a relatively fast conversion since no actual re-encoding is necessary.

Roxio Creator 2010 or 2011 (and probably earlier versions) should do it.
Nero 10 and some earlier versions should do it.
Corel DVD movie factory 7 and earlier versions should do it.
Windows DVD Maker may do the conversion for you.

Forgot about Movie Factory, that's probably better alternative to Video Studio for many people because of the lower cost.

They each can get a video to DVD/Blu Ray. The difference between the two is Video Studio focuses on editing, there's a lot of options here if you want to get creative with the video itself. Movie Factory focuses on authoring a disc with limited but essential video editing capabilities. Authoring would include creating menus and other options.
