What is M2TS? It is the file extension used by the MPEG-2 Transport Stream container format on Blu-ray and AVCHD (Sony HD format). MPEG-2 TS files are rarely readable on mobile devices or even on PC, nor is the format compatible with YouTube or other video hosting sites. To be able to play your videos on your smartphone or portable media player, it is best to convert M2TS to MP4 or other popular format. In the guide below, we will cover two options for converting video files, as well as the differences between M2TS and MP4.
How to Convert M2TS to MP4 with Zero Quality Loss
One option to convert videos is to use a file conversion program – for example, try Movavi Video Converter. This fast and easy-to-use encoder works with all popular video and audio formats: AVI, DVD, MKV, MOV, WMV, VOB, MTS, M2TS, WAV, MP3 and more. In Movavi Video Converter, you can edit video before conversion: crop, rotate, enhance, etc. You can also use it as a cutter or splitter to cut out and join together different parts of your video, as well as merge multiple video files together. The software enables you to use smart presets as well as to make manual adjustments: choose between lossy or lossless codec types and video formats and set your desired quality level. What’s more, this powerful converter will let you mute audio and combine your videos with .srt subtitles!
It’s easier than you think. Just download Movavi Video Converter and see for yourself! Choose the Windows or Mac version and follow the steps below.
Install the Software on Your Computer
First, download Movavi’s M2TS Converter. When the file is downloaded, run the installation program and follow the instructions.
Add Your M2TS Video for Conversion
Now add your video files. Click the Add Media button in the top left corner and then Add Video. Choose one or multiple files to convert from M2TS to MP4 or any other format.
Choose the Desired Format for the Video
Open the Video tab. Select MP4, or any other format, and then choose one of the available presets. If you want to convert video for a specific device, click on the Devices tab and find the model you need. If you’re having trouble finding the right one, simply connect your device to your system and hit the cell phone icon on the right – the program will suggest the right preset for you.
Convert M2TS to MP4
Click folder and choose where you want your converted videos to be saved, otherwise the files will be saved to the Movavi Library folder. Click the Convert button to start converting M2TS to MP4. After the conversion is complete, the folder containing the converted files will open automatically.

How to Use M2TS Converter Online
The other option is to convert your media files online – we recommend using the online converter at videoconverter.com. This service provides fast conversion from most popular formats to MP4. The online converter has a couple of significant downsides, though. You can only convert one video at a time, and the file size must be no larger than 100 MB.
Hit the Add Your Files button and select the file you want to convert. Next, click the Convert button. Wait until the conversion is complete, then click the Download button, and save the converted video on your computer.
