I own a Windows 7 PC, but at work we have MACS (some older, some newer) in addition to PC's. I used to either save or convert video files into an MPG-2 format when I wanted to share. Although the MPG files were very large, they provided the best resolution (and I'm willing to deal with the hassle of huge files in order to get the best possible picture & sound). The problem I've encountered is that some of the MACS no longer play MPG files (which, for the life of me, I can't understand). I purchased Emicsoft Total Video Converter, and the number of format options (and settings) are staggering. What video format is best for converting video clips or slide shows into, or for converting my MTS HD video camera productions, so that they can be viewed in the best possible resolution by ANY computer?
Am I forgetting to ask some important questions or provide important details?
