Using a M2TS file format in Sony Vegas? Need Tech help

Hey guys i need some help, this is one of my playlists for my youtube channel. I do commentary playthroughs for video games.

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmsPA9mpqcJKaqvmnSWvmTB5G_FidDqx6




Well i got a huge predicament, with my older capture card that i used to have was the "Roxio HD pro" that i recorded my first 30 or so video's, it recorded the file type into a M2TS format. Which does not load up into vegas. Also i tried many different converters and all it seems to do is convert the raw video file into a very small like 100 mb file that can not be used for nothing.

I looked up youtube tuts on this and apparently alot of people are having the same issues. I can actually upload the files to youtube but with out commentary thats no good, but that is the only thing i can do because apparently youtube recognizes the files.

I guess its a special container format for HD files but not a very flexible format, my older capture card software actually was able to output these files a MP4 file container format that could then be used in vegas for some reason, if thats the case, their has to be a way to convert them some how so they will work in vegas. But as for now i am kind of at a stand still. I won't be able to finish my play through on this game.

Basically i got my new capture card, the "elgato" and i do not regret it, its probably one of the best capture cards out their, i been using that for the video that are displayed on my playlist for raw MP4 video and commentary audio which is loaded into vegas just fine so i can edit it. How when i started this game, i had the old capture card, so the other 30 or so video's are in that M2TS file format.

This youtube video kind of shows what type of problem i am facing. The quality is just terrible and it only loads the video into the track and not the audio of the game. It does not build the peakes like it shows in this video either. My video's just simply will not load into vegas, but i do have vegas pro 12.

After doing some research on this, it appears that people claim their is a way to fix it and just doing a google search you can find alot of things, how ever i tried many different tuts and i still can't seem to get it to work for me.

Any tech savvy people could possibly help me or have an idea on how to do this?

I tried Divx converter and format factory, though they do convert the files, but they basically convert them into small file sizes, from like a 1.2 GB raw file to like 110 MB, which obviously will not work.

What version of vegas are you using? Because after a quick google search I found out that vegas "Should" be able to handle the format just fine(Especially since it's the format sony uses for blue-ray, and it's just a different mpeg-2 format anyway). Otherwise video conversion programs like handbrake or total video converter should be able to convert them to mp4. Just make sure to check their settings, as especially handbrake defaults to a low resolution when in default settings.

I am using Vegas pro 12, Well some of the video's load only the video track but not the audio track.

I don't generally like using codec packs as it causes instability with my machine, do you happen to know the correct codecs. Anyways this is the problem I am facing

It basically loads the files video track ONLY, not the audio track, it seperates the file and does not build the peaks like it usually does if you load up an MP4. I tried many converters before and the MP4's won't even load. Now whats strange is i can go to a raw MP4 file format that i capture on my card and those work just fine. It is just when trying to convert M2Ts into an MP4 container, it don't work, neither does loading just the single M2Ts file.

File type is M2TS File (.m2ts), not AVCH.

Wow, guess i fixed the problem. All those other converters i tried didn't work, but i guess total video converter worked fine. I simply converted it as a ACHD x264 format MP4. Thanks for the help!

-removed-

Thanks but i already figured this out long time ago. All i had to do was change the extension of the file type to mp4. Apparently some times when sony vegas renders out files, it renders it them out with a FTS ext, this happens alot more often when using M2TS.

Mod Edit: Removed quoted post because it was made by a spambot that was removed.
