How to Convert AVCHD to MP4
The AVCHD video format is commonly used for storing HD video on today’s digital cameras. It uses the MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 (sometimes referred to as “H264”) codec for video compression, which results in great video quality and a relatively small file size. However, the AVCHD format is not recognized by most mobile devices. To watch your AVCHD video on a portable device, you need to convert your video to a more device-friendly format like MP4.
We recommend you try Movavi Video Converter – a fast and reliable program that supports more than 180 media formats and lets you convert video, audio and even image files. It will help you to convert AVCHD to MP4 very quickly, thanks to the ultimate SuperSpeed technology. Plus, if you have a video in another format (AVI, MKV, MOV, FLV, etc) that’s been compressed with the H.264 codec, Video Converter will help you transfer the video stream to the MP4 container without re-compression (convert H264 to MP4). The converter can also help you change the video codec for your MP4 video from MPEG-4 to H.264 (convert MP4 to H264).
