If VLC won't play it with the latest version, then consider that format unique or difficult. That maybe the purpose of such a format, but generally speaking VLC covers far too many formats and for this to not run suggests it will be difficult. If VLC provides a codec pack to help resolve this, then query in that area, otherwise VLC won't support it.
Another video player that may help, CCCP, yeah CCCP. It does the same as VLC play many various formats and it too has codecs that help enhance it. google for it and get from trusted source. Hope this all helps.
I have an older computer running Windows XP. D845 motherboard with a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 processor, 2GB ram, and an ATI radeon 4350 video card @ 600 MHz and 512 MB ram. This computer will not play M2TS videos with any version of the VLC player. However, a player called Media Player Lite will play the M2TS videos. I love VLC and hate Media Player Lite. Any suggestion on how to get VLC to play my M2TS videos? Thanks!
