Summary: AVCHD files not playing in VLC? In this article, I will share my experience and offer an easy way to help you play Sony AVCHD .mts videos with VLC media player freely on Mac OS X Yosemite or Mavericks.

I seem to be the the band's servant for recording our concerts. They want free DVDs but I may quit the band. As I like freely movie making and I have done many videos for my own original music on Youtube. Recently, I find some interesting videos about a concert at the Michigan State University Community Music School of Detroit featuring the beginning band, the advanced band and the jazz band. Now I collect various footage, some I use are stolen footage from YouTube, some usually from different cameras owned by friends. Most recently a Sony Handycam. Posting at the YouTube channel of the MSU Detroit Community Music School or the band director's channel, but definitely not my channel.


This time my project required importing MTS video files from my buddy's Sony camcorder. The files would play in VLC, but would not import into any of the conv erter apps I already had installed (e.g., MPEG Streamclip). I use Duck Duck Go for search, because I distrust Google and I guard my privacy. I did a search for "Mac MTS to QuickTime conv ertor" and the pav tube MTS M2TS conv erter for Mac came up high on the list, so I bought that for $29. I was not a careful shopper -- I blame my pushy friend for this.

I like the wide variety of formats pav tube conv erts and use it directly conv ert MTS video to VLC readable formats, Apple ProRes for FCP, Apple Intermediate Codec for FCE editing. Also I have used MPEG Streamclip for years. I like that because it genuinely is free. Although I may have sent them mo ney as shareware. For freeware, it has a better interface than pav tube.

In fact, VLC player is a powerful media player for viewing movies or videos on Mac and Windows. While, I find problems with low video quality or incapability of MTS video playback with VLC. An quick workaround I find to solve the issues is to conv ert the MTS files from Sony to common formats (like MP4, MOV, AVI, MKV, MPEG, etc.) to fit the local VLC media player with Mac MTS to VLC conv erter from pav tube. If you are Windows users, you can try MTS M2TS conv erter.

Overall, this program works successfully in MTS to MP4 conversion even you have a bunch of large MTS files. I have tried it to encode MTS to MP4, it turns out playing Canon, Sony, Panasonic MTS on Mac smoothly and at original quality. It's the best software application for Mac users. What's more, this conv erter also supports many of other video formats like MOV, MKV, AVI, WMV, FLV, MPG, SWF, etc. on Mac(Yosemite and Mavericks included).


Below is easy steps for you, you can conv ert Sony MTS to VLC player compatible formats for watching in few steps.

How to conv ert Sony MTS video files for VLC playback freely?

Step 1: Add mts video files

Run MTS to VLC conv erter for Mac on your Mac computer. Transfer the individual .MTS file or MTS file structure from Sony to HD D first, and then click add to import the video files to the conv erter.

Step 2: Choose H.264 MP4 as output format.

In "Format" drop down list box, you may select best video format for plaing on Mac. To conv ert Sony MTS to MP4 format, if you want to get common MP4 files for playback, you can choose Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4); if you want to get HD MP4 files to use, you can choose HD Video -> H.264 HD Video (*.mp4).

Step 3: Start conv ert

Click "conv ert" in the main interface to start transcoding Sony MTS footage to Mac H.264 MP4.

After conversion, you can use conv erted MP4 files for playback easiliy and smoothly.

If your VLC don't play AVCHD files, just convert them to VLC supported formats.

I think Faasoft AVCHD Converter is the best one to do this job. Give it a try. It can help you convert AVCHD to MP4, MOV, AVI, ProRes, etc.
I use iDealshare VideoGo to convert AVCHD, MTS, M2TS etc to MP4, AVI, MPG etc.

It also helps to directly play or edit AVCHD

If the trouble to you is about video convert, I prefer to recommend M4V Video Converter for Windows. It is designed for all iTunes users to remove DRM protection and convert videos from M4V to MP4 and multiple compatible formats. Since all iTunes videos are encrypted with fairplay DRM protection, it can be played on Apple devices only. Now with using this DRM removal program, it will be much easier for you to crack DRM protection and convert videos with all audio tracks, subtitles at faster speed with lossless quality. After conversion, it will be much easier for you to play all these videos on any devices freely. Maybe you can catch more info on HERE.
