Windows 7: MTS file format on Windows Live Movie Maker 2011

MTS file format on Windows Live Movie Maker 2011

I have downloaded the new version of WLMM 2011. My Sony HD Handicam outputs MTS video files. Do I have to convert these files to (?what type of file?) before I can use them in WLMM 2011. I know they didn't work very well in the previous version.

That is an unusual format that even the Windows Essentials Codec pack does not support. But I believe it is supported by the K-Lite codec pack. ( Download K-Lite Codec Pack 6.50 (Full) - FileHippo.com ).

MTS file format on Windows Live Movie Maker 2011

Well, I downloaded and ran the K-lite Codex Pack 6.50 (full). However, I really don't know what that accomplished. I still have the same question...
Do I have to convert these files (MTS) to (?what type of file?) before I can use them in WLMM 2011?
Also, while I'm at it....What happened to "Auto Movie" in WLMM 2011? Is it still available and I simply can't find it...or is it no longer available?

What does actually happen if you try to open that MTS file in WLMM? And Automovie I do not see either. But I never used that.

mts is apparently some wrapper for mpeg4 material

I found this Video about converting/editing those clips.
Hope that helps you along a bit





It never fails to amaze me how many of those trashy $30.00 programs emerge with every new format. If I ever get into a situation to use .mts I know now that my TMPGEnc Express 4 can handle it (just like it hanldles the Vista/W7 tv record formats)

MTS file format on Windows Live Movie Maker 2011

Well, so far it seems that WLMM 2011 handles the mts file, so maybe this is an enhancement from the older version. When I tried to create/edit mts files in the older version, they were choppy...both within the WLMM program and when I saved them to a DVD movie.

In response to this question, someone replied that: "mts is apparently some wrapper for mpeg4 material". I'm not sure what that means.

The following is a list of supported file types in WLMM2011 help files
Windows Media Video (WMV) files
.wmv
Windows Media files
.asf and .wm
AVCHD files
.m2ts and .m2t
Apple QuickTime files
.mov and .qt
DV‑AVI files
.avi
Microsoft Recorded TV Show files
.dvr-ms and .wtv
MPEG‑4 movie files
.mp4, .mov,.m4v, .3gp, .3g2, and .k3g
MPEG‑2 movie files
.mpeg, .mpg, .mpe, .m1v, .mp2, .mpv2, .mod, and .vob
MPEG‑1 movie files
.m1v
Motion JPEG files
.avi and .mov

On another note, I did find Automovie, it is listed as Automovie themes

That was me, Lynda. It means, that mts (AVCHD) is a wrapper/container which contains a video stream in mpeg4/h.264 format.
