MTS file format icon

MTS is a file extension for an AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) video clip format for high-definition video.

The MTS file format supports 1080i (a high definition video format with 1080 horizontal scan lines, interlaced) and 720p (720 horizontal scan lines, progressive scan, rather than interlaced) in a relatively small file size.

AVCHD video files can be burned to Blu-ray discs and played in compatible devices. Sony and some Panasonic video cameras have software to open and edit MTS files. Other players convert the files. AVCHD files are based on the MPEG 4 codec

Programs that can open MTS files include Roxio Popcorn and Creator, Flash CS5, and various Cyberlink players.

The Namibian Broadcasting Company has introduced a TV decoder which records or plays back only in .mts format. This is a pain for the general public who use MP4 or AVI formats.
