More about MTS

Opening MTS or M2TS files on Mac can be tricky. For example you can't play MTS on Mac from camcorder connected via USB as an external storage device, or from Mac internal disk drive, or from removable media. The simple reason for that is Apple not supporting MTS files playback.

So for those wondering how to open MTS file on Mac there are extra media player extensions or you can try to convert MTS to MOV. But it is hard and not a trivial task to find a reliable app that will really work. And a lot of times even when you can actually open MTS files they won't play smoothly.
