how do you make .MTS files playable on a TV?
Apr 19, 2012

I apologize if this question is remedial.

Upon realizing that .MTS files play in windows media player without all the (seemingly pointless) folder structure the camera pads around the MTS file, I blew away said folder structure and kept only the .MTS files in my library.

Everything seemed fine until I tried loading videos onto a card to play on my TV. The TV didn't recognize anything. If I format the card with the camera, record some video, then stick the card in the TV, everything is fine. So Im guessing the TV needs the folder structure, index, thumbnail files and whatever else goes with AVCHD, to see & play the actual video?

If that's the case, then is a way to recreate that, having only the .MTS files? I've tried copying MTS files into the folder where the camera put new MTS files, but unsurprisingly the TV did not see the files I added.
