A video recorded or captured on a HDV camcorder leads to the output of an M2T video file. However, the video file might not always be compatible for editing on other video editing software such as iMovie, Final Cut or Windows Movie Maker (even though their official website says that the file type is supported). If you are using a Mac operating system, you can at least try to export your HDV or M2T files using the pre-installed QuickTime player.

The rate of success, however, is not guaranteed because the codec might not be recognized by Apple or the quality of the final video file would fail to live up to expectation. Hence, you might want to try out an alternative such as the Wondershare UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate). Other than being able to convert your HDV or M2T files to your preferred file type, the software also intelligently encode the video file’s codec automatically during the conversion process. The UniConverter (originally Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate) is also compatible for download onto both Windows and Mac operating PCs. Please read through the guide below on how you can convert your HDV video files on a Windows operating PC.
