Q1: How do MTS and MT2S come into being?
A: In brief, MTS and M2TS are usually used in HD camcorder videos. When you shoot some videos with your HD camcorder, there might be several separated MTS and M2TS videos instead of a complete one.
Q2: Why these files are separated?
A: Let’s take Canon HD camcorder which generates MTS files for an example. The length of the file depends on the compression. An hour video will be divided into three to four separate files. Any other situations? An amateurish photographer says that he used to shoot with a camera that split videos every two minutes!
Q3: What’s the advantage of merging separated MTS and M2TS files into one?
A: What happens is that the whole video is recorded in several pieces. And if merge them into a complete one, what result and benefit can it take to us? For instance, when you take a video of an event, you would stop recording from time to time. Every time you stop recording, the video camera would save the recorded video as a separate video. If you combine them into an integrate one, you will get a coherent video footage. What’s more? There is no necessary for you to pick out each video you shoot and want; you can merge them into one for convenient playing and editing or something else you want.
