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!
