Mac Compatible Panasonic Camcorder Videos-Easily Play/Edit TZ10/TZ7/FX75/FX70 AVCHD Lite Videos on Mac
Many of digital compact cameras made by Panasonic, such as the DMC-ZS3/DMC-TZ7, DMC-FT1, DMC-FZ35/DMC-FZ38, DMC-FX75/DMC FX70 and DMC-ZS-7/TZ-10 offer 720p video recording with effective frame rate of 25 or 30 frames/s in a format called AVCHD Lite. This AVCHD specification supports 720-line progressive recording mode at frame rates of 24 and 60 frames/s for 60 Hz models and 50 frames/s for 50 Hz models. Compared to HDV 720p, AVCHD uses higher data rate (up to 24 Mbit/s VBR vs. 18.3 Mbit/s CBR) and a more advanced compression format (AVC vs. MPEG-2).

Most of us would choose DMC-TZ10/TZ7/ZS7/FX75/FX70 AVCHD Lite as the recording mode, as it provides high quality videos. However, the compatibility for AVCHD lite and Mac is not very good, it is not easy to read/play/edit movies in this format on Mac, as it requires high configuration to handle DMC-TZ10/TZ7/ZS7/FX75/FX70 AVCHD Lite videos. While looking for the best way to read/edit/play Panasonic AVCHD Lite videos on Mac OS X, I find Aunsoft Final Mate for Mac help making the playing/editing easy and smooth.

Upload WebM Videos to YouTube-Cut/Merge and Convert Panasonic TM90 AVCHD MTS to WebM format for Youtube

I have a Panasonic Camcorder, HDC-TM90, which produces .mts files with 1920*1080p. I record some more mts videos by tm90 and want to upload to youtube for sharing with my friends. But YouTube does no support AVCHD files yet. One of the fast solutions is to convert 1080p AVCHD videos to Youtube support format, then upload the video to YouTube. Now when you upload video to Youtube, Youtube will be cutomatically converted the video to webm format. So for solve this problem, I recommend use Aunsoft Final Mate as the Upload WebM Videos to YouTube.

WebM is an audio-video format designed to provide a royalty-free, open video compression format for use with HTML5 video. The project's development is sponsored by Google. A WebM file consists of VP8 video and Vorbis audio streams, in a container based on a profile of Matroska.

Below is the fast guide for you to convert AVCHD files from Panasonic HDC-TM90 camcorder to .webm videos for uploading to Youtube on Windows 7.( It also works .mts files on Windows XP, Windows Vista.)

Step 1. Capture .mts files from Panasonic HDC-TM90 to Aunsoft Final Mate.
Connect your Panasonic HDC-TM90 MTS camcorder to pc computer with USB cable. Then launch Final Mate as the Best MTS to WebM Converter With smart camcorder wizard included in Final Mate, you can easily capture MTS files from camcorder to hard drive or to the program for basic editing.

Step 2: Create a Movie for Cut and Merge Panasonic HDC-TM90 MTS files for Youtube WebM.
Click the Add movie button, and choose the" For Conversion", a movie about cut mts for conversion output will be created by default. You can also create multiple movie for split .mts files.The Final Mate can output multiple for cutting mts files with WebM.

Step 3: Add .mts files for split/delete redundant clips for youtube.
Select the MTS files you would like to cut mts from the Camcorder/Resource tab, drag and drop to the movie.

From the timeline, you may notice the vernier, which is used as time pointer. Click on the Vernier, and move to the timeline you want to cut, and click the "Split" button to cut the video. You may also click the Split button when the video plays to the point you want to cut.
Then click on segment you want to cut off from the timeline, and then click the" Delete" button next to the Split button to remove the unwanted .mts clips.

Step 5. Convert MTS to WebM format for Youtube.
Click the Export button, and go to the last tab. Choose Common Video > WebM Video Format(*.webm) as output format. Then click the OK button, and the Youtube WebM video converter will convert Panasonic HDC-TM90 MTS files to WebM files for Youtube on Windows .
