How to Convert AVCHD Video to WMV Format?


AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a format for the recording and playback of high definition video.

Developed jointly by Sony and Panasonic, the format was announced in 2006 primarily for use in high definition consumer camcorders. AVCHD is a file-based format and does not use magnetic tape. Instead, video can be recorded onto DVD discs, hard disk drives, non-removable solid-state memory and removable flash memory such as Secure Digital and Memory Stick cards.

AVCHD has been designed to be compatible with Blu-ray Disc format and can be authored without re-encoding on Blu-ray or DVD discs, though not all Blu-ray Disc players are compatible with AVCHD video authored on DVD media, a format known as AVCHD disc.
