Default HD video mpeg4 on PC convert to what please?

Hi all,

I have recorded on my camcorder HD video, when I put these files on my PC they are mpeg4, my PC wonr play them (I have used many players VLC DVIX etc..)

I have tried using Oxelon converter to convert these files to a format that I can watch them on my PC but whatever I convert them too they are either very low quality or will not work,

Any suggestions on how to convert these HD mpeg4 files to something that I can watch them in reasonable quality would be greatly appreciated thanks

you should NOT convert those videos of yours at all or you will quality and waste time

try finding the right video codec for this very format your cam saves to

i strongly recommend you install FFDSHOW for the codec part and MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC (not the MS one!) for the playback part

give it a try and let us know

pixelated?

well if it is the original file you play then it should not unless the raw material is already showing this

ffdshow can do some "post processing" to your video - check the configuration for this option and try different settings

Default HD video mpeg4 on PC convert to what please?

S is the abbreviation of Transport stream (in high definition). It is a communication protocol for audio, video, and data which is specified in MPEG-2 Part 1, Systems (ISO/IEC standard 13818-1) (TS == Transport Steam).
Nowadays, TS files are widely spread on the internet as (usually split) recording profiles from HDTV broadcasts. Some Camcorders such as JVC Everio GZ-HD40 also support this HD format.MTS format is a high-definition MPEG, AVC, H.264 transport stream video file format which commonly used by HD camcorders such as Sony Canon, Panasonic.
.MTS files are used premarily with Sony hardware. Camcorders make use of MTS in the form of AVCHD, a recording format made specifically for camcorders. Some camcorder models from Canon also use MTS files. These files are also present on Blu-ray disc compilations, therefore they are capable of storing quite a large amount of information and data tracks.

thanks a lot for the help, I have to be honest its over my head now, I opened the ffdsshow configuration panel and I had no idea what any of it was. I will just have to record in normal format from now on I think.

Cheers

What is your HD video format? Most camcorders record videos in M2TS format and M2TS can be played by many player applications like VLC, KMPlayer, RealPlayer...
