How are you playing this "file" back on your TV? The method you are using to playback the file on your TV will dictate your options.
You can 'share' it to a .mt2s file and it will be as good quality as the original. You can't have menus like on a DVD or Blue Ray disk
Play this on Windows Media Player full screen. There are other players available that may be a bit smoother.
Make sure you get a smooth HD playback on your computer otherwise you are wasting your time
If your computer video card has HDMI output, connect it directly to your computer by an up to 5 metre lead
If your computer had a DVI output (most recent dual output card do) connect it to an HDMI inpt and rub a seperate audio lead.
By the time you buy a long HDMI lead and adapters or a better video card. you may as well buy a Blue Ray Burner (LG $100) and a Blue Ray player for your TV so you can enjoy much better movie quality (if you have a good full HD TV set)
If you havent got a Full HD 1900x1080 camera and TV you may as well use DVDs.
Hi All and thanks for your replies...
What I ultimatelly want to do is this:
1. Edit my raw AVCHD material with best possible resolution from my device (canon HF10)
2. Generate a file from my finished project
3. Upload this file to a media player (here is also a questions mark - based upon what I can generate as output file - what media player should I aim for. Total rookie in the "media player djungle" ?
4. Use the file uploaded to the media player to present the final "product", most likely on my 46 inch LED TV set - from the media player device.
Hope someone could guide me to get to the finsih line.....
Helmut, you still haven't told us what we really need to know: What is the ultimate file format that your media player will play?
Do the instructions recommend an ideal format?
What is the name and model of the device? We may be able to research it online.
