What Codec and Player do you need to play a M2TS file?

whatcodecandplayerdoyouneedtoplayam2tsfile thumb What Codec and Player do you need to play a M2TS file? I admit, I’m still noob with regards to video file and this m2ts file is an alien to me. Addiction to HD brought me to write this post and share what did I use to make this work. So what exactly is a m2ts file and what players or codec do you need to play it on you pc?

What is m2ts?

M2TS files are used primarily with Sony hardware. Camcorders make use of M2TS in the form of AVCHD, a recording format made specifically for camcorders. Some camcorder models from Canon also use M2TS files. These files are also present on Blu-ray disc compilations, therefore they are capable of storing quite a large amount of information and data tracks.

This actually my last torrent download last night. It was Yes Man of Jim Carrey. I failed to notice that the file type was in M2TS and my problem began when WMP failed to recognize this file format.

A quick search from google gave me a couple of freewares and suggestions. These includes Oxygen player and Media Player Classic Home Cinema. I tried installing both software’s but to no avail.

So what did I use to play M2TS file?

I browsed my hard drive and looked for my ever trusted player and codec pack and true enough this Storm Codec did not let me down. You can also use this to play X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This is simply amazing baby, simply amazing!

The Pros and Cons of Webhosting: Dreamhost

theprosandconsofwebhostingdreamhost The Pros and Cons of Webhosting: Dreamhost Dreamhost will be my third hosting company but don’t get me wrong here, I’m not leaving Media Temple for Dreamhost. It just so happen that my co-blogger Jehz, shared a very valuable info on how to get a 2 year free of webhosting plus domain via Dreamhost. I saw this opportunity after reading it on my Google reader and wasted no time to sign-up for Dreamhost. After 10 minutes, I already have a savings of $204. Yebah!

Now what am I gonna do with my new hosting? I don’t know yet. But for those people who would like to know on how you can avail the promo of Dreamhost, I suggest to read the blog’s of Jehz and Miguel and be a subscriber of them too.

Dreamhost – Webhosting.

Dreamhost has been online for I would say 10 years already and the growth that they have had was simply remarkable. I had an opportunity before to sign-up for Dreamhost instead of Bluehost but I did not pushed through. It was simply because of pure bad timing when the news broke out. Those were the times when Dreamhost mistakenly bills customers for multiple years coupled with numerous downtimes from known blogs before. That’s the reason my friend why I ended up with Bluehost.

But what really is with Dreamhost that makes people sign-up despite of those negativity against them?
