M2TS is a video file format that contains Blu-ray BDAV high-definition HD video. This is video from Blu-ray discs and digital camcorders. The .m2ts extension means “MPEG-2 Transport Stream”. However, it is associated as the narrower container format BDAV, which is the standard Blu-ray format for consumer video discs. The original name for the file type is Blu-ray BDAV Video File. The format was developed by Sony. It arose after the introduction of new Blu-ray media. The audio and video transmission protocol M2TS, i.e., MPEG-2 Transport Stream, was created based on MPEG-2. In fact, this is his advanced modification. The protocol supports error correction if partial data loss occurs. A .m2ts file is a BDAV container that contains digital multimedia data that is compressed by one of the videos available in the H.262, H.264, VC-1 format. And some audio codecs, too. This is Dolby AC3, PCM. There are several video and audio streams in one M2TS file. There are also subtitle tracks that can be selected during playback. Most modern video players support .M2TS format. For smooth playback, you need a powerful computer. Such a video can be edited using the professional program Sony Vegas Pro.
APE is a sound file format. In this format, data encoding is performed using Monkey's Audio Lossless. The developer is Matthew T. Ashland of Monkey's Audio. Compression of audio data in this format occurs without loss of quality. The sound quality of APE files is much higher (corresponds to high-end WAV and WAVE formats) than the more common and popular MP3 files, but they take up more space. The software package Adobe Audition allows you to edit the soundtracks of APE files. The format supports the ability to correct write errors.
