In this post, we would like to present the detailed steps required to transcode AVCHD MTS files to MP4 for viewing on iPad & iPhone.

“Hi, guys, I wanted an AVCHD Converter for iPad. I needed it to convert some MTS movies for viewing on mobile devices (iPhone & iPad) while travelling. I bought one previously and it didn’t work. The sound didn’t sync and I could not get any benefit out of my MTS video files taken with a Canon AVCHD video camera. I am disappointed I didn’t find a reliable converter earlier. I wasted money on the previous one. Does anyone know a converter app that is able to convert AVCHD MTS files to iPad/iPhone playable files with good quality without audio and video out of sync issues? I would really appreciate any help.  Thank you so much!”
