The M2TS format is commonly used for high definition video on Blu-ray Disc and AVCHD. However, it is not as widely supported as common video formats. Some players need codec to support playing M2TS video, others do not even play it at all. For PC users, converting M2TS to WMV sounds like a good idea, as you can get videos with relatively good quality and play them in Windows Media Player and load it to Windows Media Center. There are many M2TS Converter applications to choose from, and my personal preference is to use Pavtube M2TS Converter to convert the files from *.m2ts to other *.wmv and other formats I want to work with, specifically because the intuitive interface of Pavtube MTS/ M2TS Converter makes it very simple to convert the footages shot by camcorders and high-definition movies ripped from blu-ray disc to another HD format or to common SD formats. In the following guide I will show you how to convert M2TS to WMV with the converter.
