How to Convert M2TS to MKV?

Why convert M2TS to MKV?

An M2TS taken from a Blu-ray or AVCHD disk is going to be a bit bigger than an MKV with the same contents, because the M2TS contains extra file structure information that you don’t need. When you change the container and get rid of stuff you don’t want, you can save a few GBs of space. Plus, not all software can play the subtitles straight from an M2TS, nor change audio streams. The biggest consideration is the software or hardware you are using to watch the movie on. For my personal media server, I convert M2TS to MKV, pick the audio stream and subtitle if necessary, and usually end up saving a few GBs per movie. That adds over of time.
