Apple has recently released the new iPod touch with iOS 4. The new iPod touch includes FaceTime, Retina display, HD video recording and Game Center. The new iPod touch now supports playing HD 720p MP4 videos with H.264 as video codec, which makes it much more similar to iPhone. One of my friends shot videos using a Panasonic HD Camera (HDC-TM55P/PC model), but the recorded 1920x1080i .mts video is not compatible with iPod touch, on which she would like to play the Panasonic 1080i MTS files on iPod touch 4G.
A quick conversion is needed to make the AVCHD videos work for iPod touch 4G. Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter is the perfect Panasonic AVCHD to iPod touch converter, which includes specific output profiles for iPod. Not only the profiles for iPod works for iPod touch, there are also 720p profile for iPhone 4, which also works for the new iPod touch. It is easy to deinterlace 1080i videos to progressive mode for iPod touch 4G with one click.
Follow the steps below to play and deinterlace Panasonic 1080i MTS to 720p MP4 for iPod touch 4G. Here I take windows computer as an example.
Step 1. Load Panasonic TM55 videos to Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter.
Use USB cable to connect Panasonic HS250 camcorder to computer and transfer the 1080/60i .mts files from camcorder to Windows computer hard drive. Run Aunsoft MTS/M2TS Converter as the best Panasonic to iPod touch 4G converter, and click the "Add" button to load 1080i .mts videos. You may also drag and drop the .mts file to the program window.
Step 2. Choose iPod touch output format.
To get 720p MP4 format, just click the "Format" option, and choose iPhone > iPhone 4 H.264 720P(*.mp4) as output format. If you are not using the latest iPod touch 4g, you can also choose iPod > iPod Touch 2 H.264 640x480(*.mp4) as the output format.
Step 3. Deinterlace Panasonic 1080/60i videos.
To deinterlace 1080i mts files, just click the "Editor" button, and go to the Effect tab, and make sure the checkbox for deinterlacing is ticked, and then click the "Apple to All" button.
Step 4. Convert 1080i MTS to 720p MP4 for iPod touch.
Click the convert button, and the Panasonic AVCHD converter will start converting Panasonic HDC-TM55 AVCHD to iPod touch without interlaces for playback on iPod touch 4G.
