Convert Sony/Canon/Panasonic MTS to YouTube/Google/Myspace

Summary: The following is the detailed information of my own experience to convert Sony/Canon/Panasonic MTS to YouTube/Google/Myspace. Move on and find something useful to you.

What are MTS files?
The MTS extension file is a high-definition MPEG Transport Stream video format used by SonyPanasonic and other HD camcorders. It is based on the MPEG-2 transport stream and supports 720p and 1080i HD video formats. MTS files are opened and edited using the software included with Sony and Panasonic HD camcorders.

The MTS file extension is known as the Advanced Audio Coding File and is associated with the video file format of AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition), which was developed by Sony and Panasonic Corporation in 2006. This video coding gives users the ability to record and playback videos in high definition.
