Actually, Windows 7 has native support for AVCHD/MTS/M2TS videos. But if your Windows PC is running XP/Vista OS, you need special registry patch which will tie M2TS/MTS files (Blu-ray transport stream files also referred to as AVCHD files) into Windows Media Player. Otherwise, your PC will keep saying something about not finding a codec. AVCHD/M2TS/MTS files will only be playable in WMP with latest versions of ffdshow-tryouts, older versions will crash when trying to decode the video.
