How to Freely Play MTS Videos with Best MTS Player


What is MTS video format

MTS is a file extension for an AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) video clip format for high-definition video which is frequently used for the video clips captured by Sony, Panasonic, Canon and other HD camcorders.

AVCHD video files can be burned to Blu-ray discs and played in compatible devices. Sony and some Panasonic video cameras have software to open and edit MTS files. While most media players including Windows Media Player or QuickTime Player do not support MTS files natively.
