Does anyone here know of a free program to either play m2ts video files on a Mac or convert them to other video file types? Everything I can find costs money.

M2ts files are from Blu-Ray discs, as far as I can tell.

This page says VLC can sometimes work. There is a Mac version at .

That's about all I can find in a cursory search.

According to wikipedia (, the files could be encrypted or use a codec or compression method incompatible with the player of your choice, so it's kind of a crap-shoot. :/

One of the Thirty-two (or maybe Thirty-four....)!
