Have collected dozens of shootings in AVCHD format and hope to watch it with your Mac or handy devices like iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S3? Generally speaking, AVCHD file format isn't natively supported by media programs like iTunes, QuickTime, etc. Also, the tough AVCHD format has no compatibility with apple devices or Samsung media players.
In contrast, MP4 file format is more friendly to media programs and handy players. So if you wish to make AVCHD file playable on Mac or portable devices, convert AVCHD to MP4 on Mac can be an excellent choice for you.
Here I strongly recommend the fantastic program-Doremisoft Mac AVCHD Converter to MP4, which can effortlessly convert AVCHD to MP4 on Mac (Mountain Lion, Lion, Snow Leopard included).
Tips: For Windows OS owners, you can choose the PC version of AVCHD Video Converter for MP4 to take the hassles out of playing AVCHD files.
Run the Mac AVCHD Converter, then click "Add File" to load AVCHD MTS/M2TS files to the software.
Click "Profile" menu bar to choose "Common Video"->"MPEG-4 AVC (*mp4)" as output file format. If you prefer to edit AVCHD in iMovie, just select "iMovie video" and its acceptable file format.
Note:You can also customize the video or audio parameters, bit rate, frame rate, etc by accessing to "Settings" interface.
After the conversion is done, you can freely play AVCHD files on Mac or PC, even enjoy the precious recorded shootings on the move with handy devices like iPad, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy devices, etc. Now, you can have a try with the AVCHD conversion program and have easy digital life.
