I am needing to know what software would you all recommend for answering this question
Can i write AVCHD video to DVD and watch in regular DVD or need any special player?-- Yes, but you need to convert the video on your computer using software to convert AVCHD video to regular MPEG2 which will play on a standard definition DVD player. No special player needed.
