Issues with Playing M2TS in VLC Media Player:
VLC media player is a widely-used player that plays various video and audio formats. While claiming to support M2TS on its official site, we find, much to our regret that VLC won't play M2TS. For example, when opening M2TS media contents to VLC, we will experience problems like: VLC stuttering, VLC skipping or freezing when playing HD M2TS; VLC choppy playback with 4K M2TS files or VLC M2TS grey screen; VLC just loads certain M2TS forever...
Why VLC won’t Play M2TS videos?
Reason 1: In generally VLC Media Player can play M2TS video files. Some of the reasons for such errors can be in the form of the “Blu-Ray error: This Blu-Ray disc needs a library for AACS decoding, and your system does not have it”, which proves that the lack of the Library for AACS Decoding is essential for the system to play M2TS Files.
Reason 2: M2TS Files are high definition files, which needs good graphics and better RAM for the files to be played. Thus, in case, you are feeling difficulty while running M2TS Files, just check on the configuration of the System too, as these may be the other reason for the VLC Player not running some M2TS Files.
