**Part 1: What is HD Video and why should we convert HD video? **
Nowadays, more and more families own digital camcorders such as JVC GZ-X900, Panasonic HDC-TM350, SDR-SW21, Canon FS200, Sony HDR-XR100 etc. With these camcorders, we can store many wonderful and memorable scenes.
These camcorders usually record the video as MOD, TOD or AVCHD (M2TS, MTS) video files. All of these files are high definition videos, with perfect video quality. Only one thing for regret - so little devices can support these HD (High-definition) camcorder videos. Normally, you can only play camcorder videos directly from a camcorder on a HDTV with a HDMI, or burn onto DVD disc, then play from Blu-ray Disc player, or play on a computer from the camcorder connected via USB as an external storage device.
However, have you imagined playing your camcorder videos on your laptop, iPod, iPhone, Zune or any other portable players? Or even uploading your camcorder videos to YouTube, Myspace, Facebook to share with all of your friends? But all of them can not accept HD video so we should convert our HD video to populard video first. 4Videosoft HD Video Converter is such a HD video converter program to convert hd video to popular video for our portable devices.
