    My sister has a new video camera which records to some sort of DVD disk. I wanted a copy of a home movie, so I copied the contents to a removeable HDD and took it home.

    I can not find a way to play the video on my home computer???

    Also, I'd like to convert the movie to AVI so that I can edit it in Vegas Video V8.x. Is this possible? Thanks.

    PS. Here's the list of folders & files which make up this video:

    Looks like an HD camcorder (AVCHD file/folder structure).

    There are more comprehensive guides around here (and check out the "What Is -> Blu-ray" link on the top left), but basically, you'll need the following tools (assuming you're running Windows):

    - VLC Player (aka VideoLan) to play the .m2ts files in the STREAM directory
    - tsMuxeR to join the m2ts files together

    if you want to make it into an AVI, you'll need to convert it - HandBrake, Xvid4PSP, etc. If you want to make a DVD out of it, you'll need to resize the video first.

    Hopefully that'll get you started

    I didn't do too well. I used tsMuxer to join the 16 m2ts files in the STREAM folder which resulted in one file called Test.m2ts, size=945,804 KB. When I open this file in VLC, it opens 14 VLC dialogs and the CPU max's out to 100%.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks guys. I gave up trying to join the individual video streams and used Handbrake to convert each one. I'll then pop them into Vegas Video and join them that way, with a little bit of editing as well! Thanks again!
