Aiseesoft MTS Converter for Mac is a video conversion utility that can be used to convert your MTS files into other formats. The application doesn't really restrict the types of files that you can open, so you can also convert files encoded using other codecs with this app. The output format support is quite good. All the popular formats are available, including H.264, MPEG-4, MKV, AVI, DivX, XviD, MOV, and a few others. The application is also generous with the number of conversion profiles that it includes. These are simply pre-configured conversion settings that are optimized for specific devices. So, if you pick a profile for an iPad, your file will be converted with a specific codec, resolution, bitrate and aspect ratio. Since MTS and M2TS are formats that usually contain high resolution videos, it is nice to see that the application included a full list of HD profiles.
Aiseesoft MTS Converter for Mac comes with a basic video editor that can trim and crop videos, adjust some of their properties and add watermarks. There is also a small player that you can use to view your files before conversion.
In my testing, I loaded an M2TS file that had a whole movie in it, with multiple subtitle and audio tracks. I was able to select an audio track and a subtitle track and then convert the file to H.264 for the iPad. The subtitles were hard-coded into the image, which allowed me to see the subtitles on my iPad; a device that doesn't support external subtitles.
In short, this is quite a nice converter for MTS and M2TS files. It doesn't have any fancy features, and it misses quite a few, but it works very well and it is easy to use.
