How to Convert HD TS Video Files to MP4 on Win/Mac without Quality Loss

Transport Stream (also known as MPEG-TS, MTS, or TS) is a format for transmitting video, audio, and PSIP (Program and System Information Protocol) data. Normally, we can get TS files from HD camcorders such as Sony, Panasonic and cannon. We all love to capture memorable moments on camcorders. It could be a baby shower, a crazy bachelor party or even a family vacation in Hawaii. When you capture all these fantastic moments you would want to share them with your friends and family. Unfortunately, TS video cannot be played on many media players and portable devices because of incompatibility. They are hardly supported on Facebook, YouTube and other video sharing sites. You cannot even watch them on iPhones, iPads and iPods.
