Join and Remux Hard Drive Camera M2TS video files on Mac with no conversion

Summary: In this guide, you will learn how to combine and join m2ts files recorded by hard drive camera without losing details on Mac OS X.

OK, I have a hard drive camera this year. I'm trying to take multiple files and convert them to one? Here is a sample of the file I attached. I shot this in the hallway but will be filming Basketball games and it's going to have multiple files. Does anyone know of a way to join multiple .M2TS files - without having to re-encode the video? Thanks in advance. Below is a screenshot of my video files.

P.S. The hard drive camera is used for filming basketball games. I am a high school basketball coach. My software that I use needs the game film in DV format. My old camera was a mini DVD camera and it was simple to use that pavtube to convert to DV format. This new hard drive camera is recorded on a sd 64 GB card and is played back on to my hard drive. For some reason everytime you hit start and stop on record it makes that segment into a file. Since games are constantly stop and start I have over 80 clips that need to merge into one file for DV format.

There are some MTS converters that can convert my m2ts media from hard drive camera in mp4 file as I read, but it will definitely lose a lot of details doing it and it usually takes a long time encoding the H.264 contents. Also, it can't join my m2ts files together.

To fast organize and join .MTS/.M2TS files without encoding, the Pavtube Media Magician for Mac is a best choice. Its "Lossless Output" option provides a jointless MTS/M2TS/TOD merging and rewrapping solution. Using the software, you can join m2ts/mts clips into one without encoding. Not only the processing time is greatly shortened, but also you get the original HD quality. I have used Pavtube products for about 6 years now. And I have already purchased this program for a PC and a Mac. I was surprised by its amazing speed and high qualtiy video output. Below is a guide I share for your reference.

Free Download Pavtube Media Magician or Mac (Download a dmg file for Mac OS X 10.5 users)


1. If you are a Windows user, please turn to Pavtube Media Magician

2. The program is 50% off now at Pavtube office website. And by fanning Pavtube Facebook Page on you can get Pavtube Media Magician and Pavtube Media Magician for free before Nov,11, 2013.

Note: The free trial version of Pavtube Media Magician for Mac has the following limitations:

It will add Pavtube logo watermark in output file(s).
Lossless output has a file size limit of 5 minutes.


To remux camera videos to MKV/M2TS, you need to use "Lossless Output" in Media Magician for Mac. There are some things you need to pay attention to while using "Lossless Output":

1. Currently the "Lossless Output" only handles MTS, M2TS, MOD, and TOD formats, thus you are limited to do the following rewrapping without conversion:
  • Remux MTS to MTS
  • Remux M2TS to M2TS
  • Remux TOD to TOD
  • Remux MOD to MOD
  • Remux MTS to MKV
  • Remux M2TS to MKV
  • Remux TOD to MKV
  • Remux MOD to MKV

2. The format and codec of video files on timeline should be substantially the same;

3. Any editing effects (such as Effect, Audio, 3D) will be ignored when output.

The steps to merge/join AVCHD MTS/M2TS camera videos on Mac

1. Import source files into Media Magician for Mac

You can also change the start time and end time of a clip to trim/cut off unwanted parts in a movie clip. To remove clips, select one or more clips in the sequence and press "Delete". You can also change the order of clips once they are there in the Timeline. If you would like to split a clip into two parts, you can drag the cursor/pointer to the right place and click the "Cut" button to cut off the clip.

3. Remux hard drive camera recored MTS videos with no conversion on Mac

Choose "Output" in the main interface, then switch to "Lossless" > "original" or "Lossless" > "original". Click "Plus" icon to add conversion task, and click "Start" to begin merging and remuxing hard drive camera MTS recordings without recompression on Mac.

How do we choose the best MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac? The most important:

1. Converting Speed - Conversions should happen at a reasonable quick speed. It shouldn't take   forever to convert video, but faster is not always better. Keep in mind that your system has a lot to do with the speed of conversion. 

2. Output Quality - The color, brightness and audio should be just the same as in original. And the sound should match the mouths. 

3. Easy to Use - It is true that the fewer the number of click, the easier the Video Converter is to use. One thing you should require of your software selection is an easy-to-access output folder. Even a perfect conversion is worthless if you can't find the converted file. 

4. Additional Features - Video Converter for Mac should offer many practical features. The most common feature is output dimensions. This feature allows you to determine the screen's viewing size. But since there are so many more possible features out there, don't be satisfied with mediocrity.

How to make iTunes movies playable on ASUS Fonepad 7?

"Hello, I want to convert M4V files on my iTunes so i can transfer them to my Asus Fonepad 7 which I just got today as birthday gift. Any program can achieve this task? "
“I have a movie that I bought on iTunes back in 2010. How do I put it on my Fonepad (7 inch)? The format won't work, and iTunes won't allow me to convert it?”

“iTunes movies are to be used only on Apple devices officially. You can't watch iTunes movies on Android tablets, without removing the DRM protection. And if you want to watch them in Fonepad 7, there’s another work you need to do: converting to another format with proper video size. In your case, MP4 is most widely used.”

As we know, M4V videos purchased from iTunes store are protected by Apple’s DRM and can’t be transferred or played on non-Apple products. Well, in the case above, Asus Fonepad 7 is no exception. Moreover, as the answer mentioned, M4V is not a format that Fonepad 7 appreciates.

So if you really want to watch iTunes DRM video on Asus Fonepad 7, you need to go through two steps: 1. Remove the DRM protection, 2. Convert M4V to Fonepad supported video format: MP4.

To accomplish this goal, Pavtube iTunes to Fonepad 7 Converter is highly recommended for its easy-to-use interface, straight workflow and reliable video quality. It can remove the DRM protection from iTunes downloaded video, and transfer it to various video formats including MP4 profiles for Fonepad 7.

Now just download this software and follow the tips below to make your iTunes movies playable on ASUS Fonepad 7.

A command window will pop up during the installation to install specific audio driver, do not shut down and let it running until the installation completed.

How to remove DRM and record iTunes M4V video to Asus Fonepad 7? 

Step 1. Add video and choose target format.

Drag and drop your videos to it directly, or you can click icon to import them as below.

Let’s click the drop-down-list besides “Format” and choose “Common Video> H.264 Video(*.mp4)”. Or move to “ASUS” column and choose “Asus Fonepad Video (*.mp4)” as output format for your Fonepad 7.

Step 2. Customize target video specs.

Click “Settings” to enter Profile Settings window, you can find settings for video size, codec, bitrate and frame rate. For Fonepad 7 playback, you are suggested to set the Size to 1280*800 or 1280*720; and bitrate will be fine from 1500 to 2500 kb/s.

Step 3. Start conversion.

Now click the big red icon to start converting iTunes M4V videos to Asus Fonepad 7 in batch; this converter will activate your media player automatically and start to play this video. The player windows cannot be removed or closed.

In the meanwhile, it will start to record this video in MP4 real-time. The conversion time is equal to the video length itself; you can do other tasks during the converting the process.

Note: the system volume could turn off temporally during this period; no worries, do not touch it to get perfect DRM removed video.

After the conversion, click “Open output folder” to quick locate the converted video.


1. The DRM removing process may mislead your anti-virus software to falsely report virus/worm. Please ignore the report to keep on ripping.

2. This product cannot convert unplayable video (damaged, unauthorized, etc).
Now, connect your Fonepad 7 to computer with USB, and transfer the recorded iTunes videos to Fonepad 7 for watching. (Note: To change your device's USB connection options, touch Settings > Device > Storage > Menu > USB computer connection.)
