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
