AVCHD to HandBrake Converter for Windows and Mac

How to Convert AVCHD (MTS/M2TS) to MP4 or MKV with HandBrake?

HandBrake is a free and open-source video transcoder which supports to convert a variety of video formats to MP4 or MKV format for free. HandBrake supports to convert various video formats made from phones, tablets, many video cameras, game recordings, video editing programs and DSLRs in video formats, like MP4, M4V, MOV, MPG, AVI, AVCHD, FLV, WEBM, etc. However, I need to remind users that HandBrake supports so many video formats, but not every video file in this video format is supported. For example, HandBrake supports to convert AVCHD (MTS/M2TS) format to MP4 or MKV, but AVCHD and AVCHD Lite playlists are not fully supported. Worse still, many users have encountered failure when using HandBrake to convert individual files or streams. Let's see one failure example I collected from HandBrake forums as below.

I have got one AVCHD MTS file from my Canon camcorder, but when I import the recorded MTS file to HandBrake for editing, the MP4 output file has no audio. Why this happen? Is there an easy solution to my problem?

Well, we can not tell the exact reason for the failure without knowing more about your computer CPU, your HandBrake version, your operation when importing AVCHD to HandBrake, etc, but we can give a solution to your problem and actually it is a universal solution to all AVCHD and HandBrake failures.
