Convert AVCHD to MP4
I often have run into the problem that Linux can directly read the MTS files, but Windows and Mac can only read them within the original file structure. There may be a good reason for that, but I don’t see it.
This converts MTS to MP4 using ffmpeg or its successors:
ffmpeg -i 00008.MTS -c:a copy -c:v copy 0008.mp4
Oh, and to then put the videos side-by-side, this might work (testing it right now)
ffmpeg -i input1 -i input2 -filter_complex \ "[0:v:0]pad=iw*2:ih[bg]; [bg][1:v:0]overlay=w" output
