Apple iTunes is a fantastic application for managing video and songs, syncing files to Apple devices like iPod Touch, iPad, iPhone 4, Apple TV, etc. Do you have many .mts or .m2ts files from HD camcorder and want to make them Mac compatible for playback, editing with Apple Mac applications like QuickTime player and iTunes?
iTunes only supports a limited list of video formats like .mov, .mp4, .m4v, .avi with Motion JPEG, and audio formats like .mp3, .aac, .wav, aiff. You need third party conversion software to convert HD videos to iTunes compatible formats. Aunsoft Video Converter for Mac is the recommended Mac video to iTunes converter for you to make most of your videos and music/songs playable on iTunes, e.g. .TiVo, .mkv, .ts, .tp, .mts, .m2ts, .tod, .mod, .mpg, .vob, .ogg, etc.
