Part 1.What is AVCHD Lite? How to play AVCHD Lite video on Mac?
For the users of Panasonic Lumix line digital cameras like DMC-FT1, DMC-FZ35 and DMC-FZ38, AVCHD Lite should be a familiar phrase.The name was used first in marketing literature for the Panasonic DMC-ZS3 digital cameras, announced in January 2009. AVCHD Lite is a subset of AVCHD format, which identifies devices that are capable of 720p/30fps recording only. Comparing with Full HD, the 720p/30fps video is recorded in the normal AVCHD 720p/60 format, but every other frame is duplicated, resulting in thirty actual frames per second. A good news for Mac guys is that Apple has made it clear that iMovie 09’ is able to edit the AVCHD Lite video. Yet the AVCHD Lite video turns out to be incompatible with QuickTime Player. Surely you may play it with Mplayer or VLC player, but guys like me would rather use QuickTime Player watching everything. In order to play the AVCHD Lite video files generated by the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1 smoothly on Mac, the AVCHD Lite must be converted to QuickTime compatible format, like MOV, MP4,etc.

Part 2. How do I convert the AVCHD Lite for playing with QuickTime Player on Mac?
