video software

I have a Panasonic Lumix. Does anyone know if there is software which will recognise the video with Ubuntu?

Hi Aitch, and welcome to the forum :)

If they are AVCHD files (.mts) .. this topic may be of interest:
http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=9627.0

Lightworks (beta) is also due out for Linux on or around the 30th of this month .. and I'm sure I read somewhere that will be able to edit AVCHD too :)

[EDIT]

Does VLC 2.0.3 not support AVCHD (.mts) ?

Someone in another forum suggests VLC 2.x.x will play .mts (AVCHD) fies, but they're jerky .. the suggested fix is -

In VLC 2.x.x ..

Go to Tools > Preferences
In the lower left of the box click the checkbox Show settings All
Then go to Input/Codecs > Video Codecs > FFmpeg and look for the option called Skip the loop filter for H.264 decoding
Change it from None to All
Then restart VLC

I can't test this, as I don't have any .mts files .. but worth a shot ;)
