In macOS Sierra, when I try to access the .MTS video files from my Sony handy cam, the folder AVCHD always opens up the QuickTime preview window from where we can export the video a .mov file. In case, If I want to copy the .MTS file from the handy-cam’s hard disk directly, there is no straightforward option to do so. After playing around for some time I’ve figured out a technique to copy the .MTS video files directly from the handy-cam’s hard disk. Here are the steps I’ve followed.
Steps For Opening AVCHD MTS Files On Mac
- Connect the handy-cam to the mac using USB.
- In the finder, you will notice three folders DCIM, PRVATE and AVCHD. AVCHD is the one which has the movie files. It appears as an application. On double-clicking, it will open the QuickTime preview window. So do not double-click.
- Select the ACVHD and right-click to open the pop-up menu.
- In the pop-up menu select Show Package Content.
- You may see another folder BDMP, select it and right-click to open the pop-up menu. In the pop-up menu again select Show Package Content.
- Now from the list of folders select the folder STREAM, to see all the .MTS files. You can now copy the MTS files directly from the handy-cam’s hard disk or delete them if you want.
