Lossless merging of Sony HDR-TD10 MTS clips for streaming to PS3
"I just received the neat Sony HDR-TD10 camera and I'm trying to figure out the particulars of the MTS files that it shoots. Now I'd like to merge multiple Sony HDR-TD10 .MTS without losing quality, so that I can stream the result AVCHD footage smoothly over Wi-Fi to PS3 in full HD quality. The HDR-TD10 also shoots in 3D mode, so I'd prefer some tool that let me merge 3D .mts video as well. I'm working on iMac with OS X Mountain Lion. Thanks. "
There are some MTS converters that can convert your media (HDR-TD10 MTS video) in mp4 file as I read in previous posts, but you will definitely loose a lot of details doing it. This Mac MTS Converter can encode 3D MTS to MP4, if you don't mind. For lossless merging of Sony HDR-TD10 MTS clips, I find the Media Magician for Mac a best solution. Using the software, you can merge m2ts/mts files (2D or 3D) together without losing quality. Overall, this is a best solution to easily re-mux m2ts/mts files produced by Sony HDR-TD10 or other similar camcoders in order to stream them smoothly over Wi-Fi to PS3 in full HD quality. Below is a guide for your reference.
The steps to remux AVCHD MTS/M2TS camera videos on Mac
1. Import source files into Media Magician for Mac
Run Pavtube Media Magician for Mac, load source videos into it. (Learn the details on how to import source videos into Media Magician)
2. Drag and drop Sony HDR-TD10 MTS video to timeline
In the Timeline panel of Pavtube Media Magician for Mac, you can copy a video clip by "Duplicate This Clip" in the Timeline. You can also change the start time and end time of a clip to trim/cut off unwanted parts in a movie clip. To remove clips, select one or more clips in the sequence and press "Delete". You can also change the order of clips once they are there in the Timeline. If you would like to split a clip into two parts, you can drag the cursor/pointer to the right place and click the "Cut" button to cut off the clip.

3. Remux Sony HDR-TD10 MTS videos with no conversion on Mac
Choose "Output" in the main interface, then switch to "Lossless" > "original" or "Lossless" > "original". Click "Plus" icon to add conversion task, and click "Start" to begin merging and remuxing Sony TD 10 MTS without recompression on Mac.
Soon after the rewrapping task is finished by Media Magician for Mac, you can add the generated MTS file to your Mac media server and play the 2D/3D MTS video to PS3 over Wi-Fi. Enjoy it!
