    There are three H.264 formats you can choose when recording a video:

    • .TS, which is a generic 'transport stream' compatible with many digital media players

    • .M2TS, which is compatible with the Sony Playstation3

    • .MP4, which is compatible with the Xbox 360

    MP4 files are used with many video editors, like Sony Vegas, for editing. TS files are also called 'AVCHD' files and are used to burn Blu-ray DVD movies (Blu-ray burner software not included).
