    Im in the process of using Handbrake to convert a large number of camcorder MTS video files to mp4 so that they can be played on both my PS3 and macbook.

    I've just noticed that Handbrake has converted some of the MTS files to .m4v even though I've selected mp4 in the settings:(.

    The .m4v files still play on both devices, but is there a reason for this? Should I continue to allow this to happen? Is my world going to end?:)

    Here is a link to Handbrake and should answer your concerns. MP4 and m4v are the same file. The only difference is the extension. The last topic on the page in particular.

    Thanks very much for the replies.

    What I find strange is that all of the video files were filmed using the same camcorder, yet some of the files are being treated slightly differently by Handbrake.

    Though I accept that I now need not worry :)
