Help with m2ts files

Hi folks,

First post here, and I would be grateful if i could receive a little help

First off I hope I am posting this in the correct forum

I have just purchased a Sony laptop and with it came a copy of the new Star Trek movie in the format of an M2ts file

I wanted to watch this on my Phillips blu-ray player so I burned a copy to a dvd disk, however now I know that my blu-ray player does not support this format

So really what I am asking, is there anyway to convert this file ( I don’t know what type of file to convert it to ) and burn it to a dvd disk, and will the quality be anywhere near the original M2ts file?

I don’t have a blu-ray burner, that is why I am wondering if the quality can still be kept with watching on a dvd disk

Thanks very much in advance

The best option would be to use the video output of your new laptop, which is hopefully HDMI and connect that to your HDTV.

If you burn it to a DVD you will loose the HD feature of the movie, unless you burn it to a DL (double layer) disc, but you will still probably loose a good amount of resolution.

Convert it using SUPER and burn it to a DVD or AVCHD DVD.

You need to change the m2ts video container to an mkv container.

Try using MKVTOOLXIX (MKV MERGE)

Download Link: http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/win32/mkvtoolnix-unicode-3.2.0-setup.exe

Install the program
start the program
Drag and drop the mt2s file onto mkvtoolnix window
Tell it where you want to save the output
Select start muxing
Wait for it to finish
Burn the output which should be a mkv file to disk as data
Play it.

*Note other options may need to be taken.

The other measures.

Muxing an m2ts to mkv using tsMuxer and mvkmerge

So you will need two programs.

MkvMerge: http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/win32/mkvtoolnix-unicode-3.2.0-setup.exe

Burn the mkv file as data, play in your Blu-ray player.

The Phillips should play it. If it does not, try a mp4 container instead of a mkv.

[QUOTE=misled;2501552]So really what I am asking, is there anyway to convert this file ( I don’t know what type of file to convert it to )[/quote] Would you like a dvd video (like a normal dvd video you rent) or just a data file that your dvd player can handle (like divx)?

Not if you use the DVD Video standard. No HD there.
