We DON'T Recommend Free Online M2TS to MOV Converter

Actually, there are a lot of free online MTS/M2TS to MOV converter. However, they have this or that limitation, such as:

  • The free limitation is 100MB video. If your file is bigger than 100MB, you need to purchase the monthly service.
  • You can convert video only one time.
  • Your files will be uploaded to the Internet at the risk of private information leak.
  • You should have stable Internet.

Therefore, we highly recommend you to use the local converter instead.
