My Panasonic HDC-HS100 video clips come out as m2ts files. ( I use the included software to transfer filesto my laptop ) When I use my Roxio Creator 2009 to convert the file to AVI, there's often a video clip with no audio. Aggravating as HELL !!! Panasonic says that it is a common problem with 3rd party software. It's basically hit or miss when I convert to AVI....there's no predicting when a file will be screwed up !!! Panasonic says to use their program & create an MPEG2 file ,then have Roxio convert it. Will MPEG2 to AVI be a lower quality file ?
Is there ANY program that will take the Panasonic HD file & successfully convert it to AVI the first time ?
