When you got some MTS video clips, you may want to add and play MTS files in QuickTime player or import and edit MTS in iMovie, Final Cut Pro on Mac. Although QuickTime can fully support a few video formats; however, QuickTime does not support MTS files as source media. What’s else, MTS footage is usually encoded with H.264/AVC codec which does not work well with Mac video editing software including FCP, iMovie, FCE, etc. If you stick to import MTS files to QuickTime for playback or edit MTS in FCP/iMovie, get the quick fix from the following paragraphs, which teaches you how to convert MTS to MOV on Mac(Yosemite) for easier playing and editing.
