Method 2: Using XMedia Recode

XMedia Recode is a free All-In-One video converter, audio converter and video editor living in the shadow of the well-known and popular Handbrake. But unlike Handbrake that only allows you to output MP4, MKV, and WebM format, XMedia Recode offers a wide range of output formats so that you're able to convert MP4 files to MTS as well. Before you jump in, make sure you have Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2017 installed on your Windows PC.

Step 1. Download XMedia Recode from official website:

Step 2. Run XMedia Recode, click on "Open File" button to add your MP4 files. Alternatively, just drag and drop them into the interface. XMedia Recode will list the MP4 videos with Name, Chapters, Duration, Video/Audio Streams and Subtitle Tracks.

Step 3. Under "Format" tab, select "MPEG TS (DVB TS)" option in the drop-down list of "Format" and "mts" option in the drop-down list of "File Extension" respectively.

Optional. Switch to each tab for modifying parameters, such as the video frame rate, codec, subtitles, chapters, audio, etc.

Step 4. Choose an output destination to save the converted MTS files on the bottom of XMedia Recode.

Step 5. Finally, click on "Add to queue" button on the top, and then hit "Encode" button to start the conversion process.

Tips. If your computer is qualified for Nvidia NVENC encoding, go to "Video" tab and change video codec to "MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 (Nvidia NVENC)" option for hardware-accelerated conversion.

Method 3: Using Convertio

To be honest, I don't recommend that you use some online platforms for changing MP4 file to MTS online, as they usually not only have file upload size limits, but also are filled with lots of pop-up ads. However, if you only have a handful of small-sized MP4 files that need to be converted, you may give Convertio a shot. Here's the walkthrough below.

Step 1. Open Convertio in your browser through this link:

Step 2. Upload your MP4 files from your PC, Dropbox or Google Drive. For free users, you're limited to upload MP4 files within 100MB.

Step 3. Select "MTS" format in the drop-down list. Then press the "Gear" button to open "Settings" window to modify video and audio parameters at will.

Step 4. Press "Convert" button to convert MP4 files to MTS online.

Step 5. When the conversion is complete, download the converted MTS files back to your local drive.
