The following article will offer beneficial tips and solutions to successfully get AVCHD files played on Windows Media Player.

Transfer AVCHD files to PC computer

Before importing AVCHD to Windows Media Player, you will first need to transfer the AVCHD files from the camcorder to your PC hard drive. The AVCHD can be recorded on DVD disc, memory cards, non-removable solid-state memory and hard disk drives, when transferring AVCHD file from those file-based media to computer, you can either use Windows File Explorer, make sure the transfer the folder containing all related files and its subfolders. Keep the folder structure intact. When transferring files from AVCHD file-based media, transfer the BDMV folder and all its contents.

AVCHD folder structure

Convert AVCHD for Windows Media Player Playback

After searching for Windows Media Player supported file formats, we get the information that Windows Media Player can only handle M2TS files encoded with MPEG-2 compression codec, however, it is well known that AVCHD are MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression codec based files with .mts or .m2ts file extension. Therefore, to open AVCHD with Windows Media Player, you will need to perform a codec transcoding process.

Here, you can easily get the job done with a powerful yet simple to use application called Pavtube Video Converter. With the program, you can batch load multiple AVCHD mts/m2ts files recorded with Sony/Canon/Panasonic high definition camcorder for conversion at one time. After loading the AVCHD files into the program, you can rearrange the file order to let them displayed with the right order for merging/joining into one complete file.

The program allows you to transcode AVCHD to Windows Media Player compatible file types in various different file formats. Here, we highly recommended you to choose the WMV file format, which is native supported by Windows Media Player without installing extra codec. Here, you can produce 2 types of WMV files with our program, if you wish to have a fast conversion speed, you can ouput a WMV file with WMV2 (WMV8) codec, if you care much about output file quality, just select the “WMV3(WMV9)(*.wmv)” file which helps to produce a high quality wmv file with VC-1 codec.
