I admire you who were able to go for the FIFA World Cup, a great feast for the whole world. And I’m sure you will record a lot of videos with your iPhone or Android phones from Samsung, HTC, and DV or HD camcorders or cameras from Canon, Sony, and Panasonic. Due to the different standards, the video formats are totally different. As far as I can see, Canon and Panasonic HD Camcorders use AVCHD with high definition, and iPhone and iPad use MOV as their recording format. Sony seems a bit special as it uses different video formats like AVCHD, MMV, MXF, MTS, etc for different video recordings. If you have trouble converting Sony camcorder videos to other formats and you need a Sony video converter and I am here to recommend one.
A Decent Sony Video Converter for PC and Mac
I’d like to recommend you guys a decent Sony video converter that is fully compatible with the latest operating system Windows 10 and macOS 10.13 High Sierra, 10.14 Mojave, and 10.15 Catalina from Microsoft and Apple: Wondershare UniConverter.
Wondershare UniConverter is originally named as Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate. To me, Wondershare is my all-in-one sony video converter for all my videos in AVCHD, MXF, M2TS/MTS, MOV, etc as it can download and record videos from YouTube, Facebook, Dailymotion, Fox, BBC, Sling TV, ITV, CBC, etc, burn videos to DVDs, transfer videos to iOS or Android devices, make slideshows or GIF from any videos and photos and edit them as well.
As the name suggests, Wondershare UniConverter is your ultimate converting program and it supports almost all Sony video formats, including videos you recorded with Sony camcorders and cameras, no matter they are in AVCHD, M2TS/MTS, DV, MOV, MXF, etc.
With Wondershare, the very Sony video converter, you can convert your Sony camcorder videos to various video formats like MP4, AVI, Final Cut Pro, etc and you can convert Sony camcorder videos directly to web-optimized videos for sharing on YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, etc.
Besides, you may be wondering if you are able to use the Sony video converter to convert videos directly on your phone/tablet like iPad as the iPad seems to be powerful enough. Well, you can and but I just don’t recommend you do so as video converting is really CPU-consuming. While Apple’s A11 and A12 CPU chip is powerful among portable devices, it still cannot be mentioned in the same breath with desktop-level CPU chips like Intel i5, not to speak of i7.
With High-Speed Conversion mode on, Wondershare UniConverter is believed to increase the converting of your Sony Camcorder or camera videos 200% faster.
How to Convert Sony Camcorder/Camera/DV Videos to MP4 YouTube
If you want to convert your Sony camcorder/camera or DV recordings in AVCHD, M2TS/MTS, MXF, MOV, etc to another video format like MP4 for sharing, it is simple with this Sony Video Converter. You can add the recordings directly from your Camcorder/Camera to the convert list for converting. But I’d always like to suggest you transfer your recording to PC or Mac first for faster converting. Anyway, I have a detailed guide on how to convert those kinds of videos. Besides, you will have a more detailed how on how to convert AVCHD to MP4 as AVCHD is a bit special on MAC.
Convert AVCHD/MTS/MXF to MP4
Like iOS or Android recordings of your favorite videos, I’d always like to recommend moving your recordings to the computer first because of the faster read speed of your hard drive, meaning conversion can be faster. But you are still able to connect your HD camcorder to your PC or Mac and add the videos directly to Wondershare Sony Video Converter. And it is also easy. Here’s how.
Step 1. Add from Camcorder
On the default convert tab, go to the drop-down menu of “Add Files” and click “Add from Camcorder”. You can also click Add Files to add MTS MXF MOV etc directly from your hard drive.
The Sony Video Converter will then scan your camcorder and select the file you want to convert.
Step 2. Output Profile
MP4 Video or the last one you use is the default for converting Sony camcorder videos. Click its drop-down menu and pick up the one you need.
Step 3. Convert Sony Camcorder Videos
Hit Convert or Convert All to do so! Sony Video Converter’s High Conversion Speed mode is able to remux Sony videos to MP4 in seconds if the codec is H.264.
