It is easy to convert m2ts videos into Full HD XviD avi. Just a few clicks and you are ready to go. It took around 2 minutes 30 seconds to convert 30 seconds 50p video. And 1 minute 20 seconds on 25fps 50i video. It also supports deinterlacing on 50i video. You won’t see any interlacing lines in the video when it turned on. Download above video outputs and play it with VLC Player to see the video quality.
The only issue that I found ~ it failed to encode sound into video with certain 50p videos.
Other than that, it is working well on converting video into HD video for PC and SD video on mobile phone.
