Tips:
What is MTS/M2TS ?
The .m2ts file format is given to video/audio files created by certain Sony Camcorder models. An .m2ts file is a Sony high definition video file type. Panasonic, Canon and other brands of AVCHD camcorders also record in m2ts format. Currently, m2ts files can be played using the Picture Motion Browser, which is an application video player provided with Sony AVCHD camcorders.

Why MTS/M2TS to MOV?
MTS/M2ts files are raw AVCHD videos, and the main disadvantages are large-size and they can't be played on the common players such as Apple TV, Zune, PSP, PS3, Pocket PC, Creative Zen, and other video players. For the Mac users, even QuickTime and iMovie can’t support these formats. That is to say, you have to convert the MTS/M2TS files to other formats (e.g., MOV).
