MTS files to DVD ISO any free options?
A club I volunteer at records the meetings in MTS format.
I would like to go direct from MTS file to a dvd iso to maintain the highest quality. Without having to go MTS to MP4 to DVD to ISO format. seems I would lose some quality
I would like to see if anyone knows of a free program that can do the job.
I looked in the forums and the only mentions of doing this are pretty old and most are not really complete solutions.
I was hoping more had options had appeared since 2010 since the format is more common now.

I was not aware of that!! ( sarcasm since the original question was ignored by newpball )
So you think the best option would be to record at dvd quality ?
Since you may not understand. We are recording at the highest resolution we have available, even though most people who are viewing it, only have dvd players. Plus the media cost is a lot lower than bluray currently .
Did you think we delete the original file?
For the others who recommended AVStoDVD, THANKS, I am trying it, it just takes soooo long.
he was just saying you can put HD content on dvd media.
I am in a similar situation and i'll be honest, making DVDs for group consumption is simply too difficult. Have you considered putting the video on a private Youtube channel? It is much easier encoding for the web imo.
time to up the dosage on your meds.Is he gone?
However, with all that said, I have also noticed that professional video firms I have dealt with in my town have not migrated to BD, but still charge upwards to $35 for a DVD (blecccchh).
The OP and the club will have to decide if YouTube is a viable option. If he's lucky it may be. ...but strange as it may seem to one member participating in this thread, there are still people living in the US who do not have a computer or who have one but still use dial-up Internet service.
Now I am curious what kind of club videovic volunteers at.
In testing your bluray solution virtually in my mind, I was unable to get the bluray disc to play in the dvd players.
If I could get Bluray players at $.81 per player, you would not hear from me again since I will be buying containers of them to resale.

Dear God, Gods, or Nonexistant gods, Thank you not everyone is like newball
Just wanted to cover all bases
Many times these will be played in remote locations, locations with no internet access , locations where they have to run a generator just to get electricity.

Feel free to tell me what I need to update the world.
Thanks I will look a the the encoder and try to get it to work.
But as far as the age thing, we have members from 21 to 95 yeas old.
Board members tend to be from 45 to 84 year old.
The older members tend to have less needs for computers for various reasons
We actually had a board meeting on this.
Most people 45 years or older typically did not have computers in school up to High School.
Someone who retired 20 years ago, may have never needed a computer at work to complete job.
Some people who have retired, who used computers at work may have no interest in using computers.
And as far as our group, from membership records, most members who do not have email address happen to be older.
The older board members pointed these things out themselves.
If you perceive this under a convenient label of ageism, or have a difficult time contemplating someone who has no email address or computer then Iditism has already surfaced
HCEnc is one of the encoders available in AVStoDVD. Unfortunately with video encoding the rule is that you can have a fast result or you can have quality result, but you can't have both, unless you happen to have a Xeon workstation at your disposal.
I'm one of the usual suspects. newpball is a troll who has attempted to derail numerous DVD-related threads with similar stupidity.
Yeah, It is pretty apparent newpball is a troll lacking in knowledge to help others so he just rattles on making nonsense .
