I used to put AVI videos from my standard definition camcorder to the external hard drive, which is connected to my Samsung LN46B650 via the USB port. Recently, I got a new Panasonic Lumix camera DMC-TZ10, and I am use the AVCHD Lite mode to record videos. The HDTV does not play .mts files on the hooked hard drive.
Thinking the SD camcorder files are AVI, I shall find some tool to convert my Lumix DMC-TZ10 MTS to AVI for Samsung HDTV. I’m lucky to find Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter to merge the camera videos clips on Windows PC and convert to AVI with perfect quality.
Step 1. Load AVCHD Lite files to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter.
After transferring AVCHD Lite files from Lumix DMC-TZ10 camera to PC hard drive disk, run the top-notch AVCHD Lite to HDTV converter. Click the "Add" button to import batch of 720p .mts videos, or drag and drop the AVCHD Lite files from folder to program UI.
Step 2. Choose AVI format.
Click the "Format" option and navigate to Common Video > DivX-AVI - Audio Video Interleaved(DivX)(*.avi) as output format. The Panasonic Lumix AVCHD Lite converter will convert HD 720p MTS to AVI for Samsung HDTV.
Most HDTV will support DivX AVI files, and the output AVI files work on Samsung HDTV with perfect video and audio quality.
Step 3. Convert Panasonic TZ10 AVCHD Lite to AVI for HDTV.
Click the convert button under the preview window, and the conversion from Panasonic Lumix AVCHD Lite to AVI for HDTV will start immediately.
