Handbrake re-encodes the file. Reducing the quality of it. Some thing like MKVToolnix will wrap the AVCHD into a MKV format. It will take 5 seconds and you won't lose quality.

mkv is a completely pointless format, there is zero need for it.

last time i looked, youtube wouldn't accept it as an upload, which was the purpose of this thread.

MP4 doesn't have as great tools. You'll need to demux (separate) the video and the audio streams then use MP4box to put them together into a MP4 format. Then hopefully it will be in sync.

demuxing is non-destructive, unlike re-encoding.

i've never had a sync problem with any demuxing/muxing tool that i've used over the years.
