Encode Canon Videos to Galaxy Note 10.1 compatible format for watching

Symptom - I run an Apple MacBook Pro with Retina display on Mac OS X 10.8.2. I had taken videos with my Canon VIXIA HFS10 High Definition Video Camera. I need to convert these Canon AVCHD videos into MP4 so that I can watch them on my new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. Please help. 


Solution - If you want to convert the Canon AVCHD to MP4 format, you will need a Mac Canon Video to MP4 Converter to help you out. Notice that on Mac 10.8.2, the AVCHD folder has been showed as a jpg file not a package. Some of you may find many converters will not read that AVCHD file. Pavtube Video Converter for Mac is a piece of software that can read this file successfully on Mac 10.8. Hope it helps.

Symptom - I am trying to convert MOV files from a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera to workable format with Galaxy Note 10.1. What’s the best format you recommend to keep the high quality? I am working on a MacBook Pro OS X Lion 10.7.4 and have plenty of space on the hard drive.
