I want to have MTS videos on my Galaxy Tab S for my toddler to watch
“Hi, can anyone help please? I want to put some of my MTS videos onto my Galaxy Tab S for my toddler to watch while I’m getting ready in the morning. The videos are taken with my recently purchased Canon R400 camera. Unfortunately, Galaxy Tab S seems not to read MTS files, so I can not play them at all. Does anyone know what I can possibly do? I would really appreciate any help. Thank you so much!”
