Mac users are still getting acquainted with the new Mac OS X Lion, with over 250 features added in the package. It has been described as the transitional operating system that will see technology shift completely from the personal computer. It was even reported that the new OS was sold to over 1 million users on the say that it was released in July. However, with upgrades come challenges, including that of compatibility with non-Apple applications that were compatible with the previous Mac OS. Many became incompatible, forcing users to do without the applications until they are upgraded.

Video conversion

One of the areas that non-Apple applications have come in handy for Mac users is in video conversion. There are numerous video formats that are available today, and many of these are not compatible with Mac applications. For instance, if you are a sucker for taking home videos or creating your own videos then uploading them to YouTube, then you require a video converter. Most camcorders record video files in MTS format, which is not compatible with Apple applications such as iMovie, a popular video editing application for Mac users.

MTS format

MTS is a high-definition video format that produces quality videos, and is used in most camcorders, including Sony, Panasonic and other HD camcorders. The files can typically be opened and edited using software included with the camcorders, and for Mac, you can open MTS files using applications such as Adobe Flash CS5, Apple Final Cut Studio and VLC media player. However, if you want to play the videos on QuickTime or use iMovie for editing, then you require an MTS converter for Mac that is compatible with the new Lion operating system. The Wondershare video converter is just the right fit for you if you find yourself in this situation.

With this software, you not only get compatibility with the new OS, but you also get access to free updates and lifetime technical support, so you don’t have to worry about incompatibility in the future either. You can convert all your MTS videos to formats that are easier to use on Mac, such as MOV, which you can then play on QuickTime and edit on iMovie as well. In fact, in addition to this MTS converter having MOV as an output format, you can also choose from numerous other input and output formats, which means that you can convert between multiple video formats with no limit.


The Wondershare video converter also comes with editing features of its own, including cropping, trimming and adjusting the video effects without compromising the quality of the videos. In addition, the software has an interface that is extremely easy to use, which means that you do not need to be a video-editing pro to make pro videos.
