M2T (MPEG-2 HD) is High-definition video recording format used by many HD camcorders and is commonly referred to as “HDV”. M2T file uses MPEG-2 compression to store HD video data on DV or Mini DV tapes and can support resolutions of 720p and 1080i. If you want to do some further edition, you need to convert HDV M2T files to AVI, MPEG4 , MOV etc.
M2T files and MPG files are actually not completely dissimilar, as both are different types of MPEG2 video files. As a result, this is a much less complicated conversion than many other possible video conversions. If a quick file renaming trick doesn’t work, there are many conversion programs available on the Internet. I’d like Pavtube HDV M2T Converter .
