Play Panasonic TM900 AVCHD 1080/60p Video on Mac with TM900 AVCHD Converter for Mac

Panasonic HDC-TM900 is the successor to the lauded HDC-TM700, the pick for Camcorder of the Year in 2010. The TM900 offers the same fantastic video performance as its predecessor, particularly with its widely-praised 1080/60p or 1080/50p mode, but Panasonic didn’t improve on much else. It has a slightly larger LCD and a few extra touchscreen features, that’s about it.

Nowadays many people will own a HD camcorder or more generally with the brand like Panasonic, Sony or Canon. My sister also have a Panasonic HDC-TM900 which is bought this year. This HD cam produces 1080/60P recordings. The Full HD video footages are saved as MTS files in memory cards. I am trying to help her find the solution to make HDC-TM900 AVCHD files play on my Mac for enjoyment. After searching online, I found two solutions for playback 1080P HD videos on my Mac mini. Now I will share my whole usage experience. Keep reading and probably this will help you too.

Play MTS recording video with VLC player on Mac

Play MTS recording video with VLC player on Mac:

My first thought is to find an easy media player to support MTS playback. VLC player comes to my mind. This software can indeed be compatible with MTS very well. But still problems: One is the video clips are separated and not a whole one. When a clip is over, a black screen appear for a second and then next clip. It is annoying. Moreover, I do not know it is the problem for VLC player or my Mac mini, the video is not smooth and always pauses. Probably my mac has no the enough power. After all, AVCHD 1080P files are very large. To handle it, powerful space and power are needed. So I think I should find other ways to play these footages.
