How to Play Our MTS (AVCHD) Movies on WDTV?

Though it is said that WDTV can support a wide variety of popular file formats, for the high definition AVCHD MTS recordings, we may got some troubles for playback. So in the following article, we are going to discuss the topic on how to play the AVCHD MTS movies smoothly on WDTV. 

‘I have read a lot about media players like Roku and WDTV but it appears that almost every piece of hardware out there soed not support MTS(AVCHD) files, which is insane to think Canon sells HD camcorder that saves in a format that isn’t supported anywhere….maybe we should get through this situation in another way’

As we know the issues we met above when working with WDTV, we also suggest you to know more details on WDTV supported file formats:

Video: MP4/MOV (MPEG4, h.264)
AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4)
TS/TP/M2T (MPEG1/2/4, AVC, VC-1)
MKV (h.264, x.264, AVC, MPEG1/2/4, VC-1)
MKA, AIF/AIFF, OGG, Dolby Digital, DTS
Playlist PLS, M3U, WPL
Subtitle SRT, ASS, SSA, SUB, SMI
File systems FAT32, NTFS, HFS+

As we see above, AVCHD MTS is not included on the list above, so here we recommend the best AVCHD to WD TV Live Hub Converter---Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Windows/Mac, which enables you to convert/transcode AVCHD MTS files to WDTV compatible format easily, and then you can import/join/stream AVCHD to WD TV Live Hub without any trouble. Additionally for some NLEs like Sony Vegas or via iTunes, AVCHD MTS can be available too. What’s more, this program adopted the advanced NVIDIA CUDA that makes the conversion task finished at up to 6x faster speed.
