In this article, we will join 1080 60p/50p MTS together and convert them into MPEG-2 .mpg video for streaming to DLNA-compliant Players.

Step 1: Software Installation
To install Pavtube Media Magician for Mac, please
1) Download Pavtube Media Magician for Mac installation file.
Download PKG file
Download DMG file
2) Double click on the installation file to begin installing.
3) Follow the instructions to install Pavtube Media Magician for Mac on your computer.

Step 2: Import raw 1080 60p/50p MTS clips into the program

There are two ways available to import source media files:
1) Import from camera/camcorder
Connect your camera with your Mac computer and run Pavtube Media Magician for Mac. This camcorder companion tool will detect your camera automatically and ask “Camcorder is connected. Are you ready to launch wizard now?” Click “Yes” to confirm.

In the mean time, you are allowed to backup MTS footage directly from camera to local computer. Also, you can click the camera icon to load camcorder videos as well.

2) Import from local computer
If you already have stored MTS clips on your computer’s HDD, you can choose to “Import Media Files” or “Import Media Folder” to browse and load your source files from computer.

Step 3: Drag and drop the MTS clips that you want to combine onto timeline

After source MTS clips are imported into the Media Magician for Mac program, you need to drag and drop the clips that you want to merge onto timeline.

All files placed on timeline will be output as one file. So if you want to merge and join several clips, just drag them to timeline in right order.

Step 4: Combine MTS clips into one file & convert them to MPG for video streaming over DLNA

Choose “Output” in the main interface, and click “Plus” icon to add conversion task before selecting output format. Then switch to “Common format” > “MPEG-2” and click “Start” to begin exporting MTS to .mpg for streaming to DLNA-compliant Media Players.  

Before start conversion, you can also custom/optimize output file quality by adjusting video and audio settings like codec, resolution, bit rate, frame rate, sample rate and audio channels.

This MTS joiner software for Mac will specify a default folder to save the converted videos. If you’d like to change the output location (output path), please click  to navigate to the folder you’d like to save videos to.

When conversion task finished, you can right click on the task list and check “Find Target” to get the generated MPEG-2 .mpg files for streaming to your Media Player over DLNA.
