"I just upgraded my computer to Mavericks yesterday and tried to play my HD videos on it but it got stuck there. Even though I used HandBrake to import my M2TS videos, it crashed halfway. So I'm seeking for a program that enables me to play HD video on Mavericks."- Julia
HD video refers to a video of higher resolution than is standard, and most commonly involves a resolution of 1280◊720 (720p) or 1920◊1080 (1080i or 1080p). Generally coming from Blu-ray, HDTV, HD camcorders from Sony, Panasonic, Canon, etc, HD videos are usually saved in the formats like MOD, TOD, MTS, M2TS, TS, MKV, and more. All of the formats are widescreen 16:9 and display between 24 and 60 frames per second.
While HD videos offer us a higher-quality picture, they also torment most Mac users as QuickTime doesn't recognize those HD videos, be it MKV, MTS, M2TS, MOD, or TOD. Worse still, your computerís upgrade to the new OS X Mavericks system seems to run salt into your wounds even if you call for Perian or other plug-in to extend the format because these codec packages will not work at all on OS X 10.9. Does this mean you cannot play your MKV M2TS HD Blu-ray videos on your Mavericks?
