Have you held a party with your big family and friends, or traveled around some attractive places with your lovers and kids, or done something else you were looking forward to for a long time? Whatever you did, you must have not forgotten recording all the meaningful and unforgettable moments as precious memories via a Canon, Sony, or Pansonic AVCHD camcorder. Then it is a good idea to upload these charming things shot by your camera onto YouTube for sharing with everyone else in the world.
However, if you have this thought, you should know that AVCHD camcorders save footages in the format of MTS and M2TS, which are out of the range of YouTube supported formats, they are .FLV, .MKV, .MOV, .WMV, .AVI, MPEG, .MP4, DivX, 3GP and .OGG, therefore, in order to upload MTS and M2TS video files onto YouTube successfully, you have to convert these files to YouTube compatible formats as above mentioned previously.
At the same time, one more thing you must notice, that is video files uploaded to YouTube by standard accounts are limited to 10 minutes in length and 2 GB in size and only partner account holders are permitted to upload videos longer than 10 minutes. That means you should compress the length and size of your footages to fit the two requirements.
