play and edit MT2S files

MT2S files are High Definition Sony Blue ray AVCHD Files,
commonly produced by High Definition Camcorders.

To use edit and play these files on your Linux system
Openshot video editor works well as a video editor

yum install openshot or apt-get install openshot

although VLC can play these files you need to make the following changes to VLC so that they play well.

open up VLC

Go to Tools -->Preferences --> Input &  Codecs 
on the option “Skip the loop filter for H.264 decoding” select ALL 
Then in preference window Click Show Settings -> All. and expand Stream Output ->
Click Muxers ->select Mux module as “FFmpeg muxer”

next click

Expand Video -> Select Output module -> In Video Output module and select X11 video output.

and then save your settings

MT2S high definition files should play much more smoothly in VLC now.
