Got a bunch of clips that were dumped from a Panasonic TM900. Suggestions on best method to convert to mp4? They are 1080p 60 fps progressive.

"a lot of people are better dead" - prisoner KSC2-303
mts, m2ts, ts, mkv, mov with h264 video can repack to mp4.
Is there something that is reccomended for large batches? I've got a bunch of small files that need to be converted.
mp4 for all purposes but archive, for archive I'm keeping the .mts files
Good to keep originals as 1920x1080 60p full 28 Mbps archive.
1080 60p is not supported for current Blu-ray. In future players, 1080 60p up to 35+ Mbps will be supported.
For current Blu-Ray you need to convert to 1920x1080 60i or 1280x720 60p. No need to change bit rate or AC3 audio.
For AVCHD disc (on DVDR media) you also need to reduce bit rate (18 Mbps for all players to 24 Mbps for some). AC3 is OK.
For Youtube, you should reduce frame rate to 30p and change audio to AAC.
For Apple iOS convert with Handbrake to device presets. Other phones/tablets vary.
For 3rd gen iPad, max is 1920x1080 30p High Profile level 4.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats. (max video bit rate unknown -- I'm planning to test one).
For other video players, each needs testing.

The 3rd gen ipad looks impressive.
Anyone using a tool to do a batch conversion that yeilds good results? I'll shoot for the 1280x720 60p res and switch to 30p if that doesn't work well.
Hybrid can also be used for remuxing (and much more):
0. download and install Hybrid
1. start Hybrid
2. set Main -> Video Handling to passthrough
3. set Main -> Audio Handling to 'passthrough all'
4. select all your files and drop them on the input file line (alternatively press 'Input File' and select all of them)
(now Hybrid will start to analyze all your sources)
5. Config -> Path settings -> set the Output Path
6. activate Main -> Generate
7. press Main -> Add to Queue
8. press Main -> Start Queue
