WD Media player don’t play AVCHD camcorder movies but only individual M2TS / MTS files, why?
WD Media player don’t play AVCHD camcorder movies
Can you better explain what you mean please?
Camcorder is Panasonic HDC SD9
When copy the VIDEO file from the SD card to the mediaplayer, the structure is as follow:
container VIDEO => contains 3 containers DCIM+MISC+PRIVATE
container PRIVATE => contains 1 container AVCHD
container AVCHD => contains 3 containers AVCHDTN + BDMV + IISVPL
container BDMV => contains 3 containers CLIPINF + PLAYLIST + STREAM
container stream => contains files 00000.MTS / 15.62MB … files 00288.MTS / 12.53 MB
It’s only possible to play the individual .MTS files, one for one. This mean 288 times click on play to see the selected videoshot.
Why can’t play the WD mediaplayer all the individual .MTS files (videoshots) 1 times in a row?
Have you tried using the play button instead of the OK button on the first file? It should play all the files in a row.
As Proove said, press the Play button on the first file. However there will still be gaps (maybe 1-2 secs) between each clip, which may or may not annoy you. If you don’t want to make a movie in your favourite video editing program you could join the clips together using the excellent TSMuxerGUI by SmartLabs (it’s free).
Indeed, when press on the play button on the first file there are gaps between each clip. Maybe in the future there will be a new firmware what providing a solution for this problem. Less useful join the clips together by using TSMuxer or connect your camcorder to the TV.
I doubt if this could be fixed with new firmware - I believe it’s down to the low performance of the CPU.
try it, maybe will WD media player become THE PLAYER for all users of Sony and Panasonic AVCHD camcorders.
