^^For those..^^ - I've somewhat mentioned in earlier posts. As of currently, there is no program, that i know, which can edit the .m2ts files. Thus, one has to convert them to a standard type format, like avi (or if you want to mpeg4 or h264) first. The link i gave, above (post #76), should give you a program (out of many out there) to convert a .m2ts file to an avi format. Download and install. Once you've imported the .m2ts file to your PC, then import to the program for conversion. You can choose between Auto or mpeg4 codec as options. Then as for the resolution, choose at least 1280x720, just to retain the quality. Try not to go smaller. For audio, choose MP3 or AAC. After it's converted (should take several minutes, depending on your PC) and saved, you can edit the video. If you have Windows 7, you should be able to play the .m2ts file directly on your PC. Not sure about editing it (haven't tried it). - As for editing programs, currently the 2 "easy" & free ones are WMM and iMovie. If you have Windows XP, you should have Windows Movie Maker program already installed. Have you used it? The google link i gave earlier about discussion on which program is better, should give an idea. They're both relative the same in terms of usage. I've tried Windows Movie Maker and it's not too bad. Good luck!
