M2TS might not be a popular container for videos, but you might stumble upon it while working with HD videos. Even though the format is pretty secure, your M2TS videos might get corrupt due to several reasons. The good news is that you can use an M2TS video file repair tool to fix your videos and can also play them with a reliable M2TS file player. In this guide, I will cover the same and would also let you know how to convert M2TS to MP4 or MVK formats.
M2TS is ideally an extension of MPEG-2 Transport Stream, which is commonly used to contain Blu-ray disc videos, CRB streams, and other high-definition content. It is not an open-source container and has been developed by Blu-ray Disc Association.
Although M2TS can contain both audio and videos, its compression can be a bit inferior. That’s why variable rate transport streams are used to maintain the high-quality resolution in videos.
It supports H.262/MPEG-2 Part 2 and MPEG-4 AVC for video compressions while for audio formatting, it relies on Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD.
Great! Now when we have covered the basics, let’s learn how to play M2TS files. For this, you would need to use a reliable M2TS file player. There are plenty of applications that support M2TS video files, including the following:
VLC Media Player: It fully supports MTS and M2TS formats and runs on leading macOS and Windows versions.
