How do I get the video clips from my Lumix TZ7 so I can send them to other people. The files appear to have the file extension .MTS.
If they're short, you can upload them into Picasa (picasaweb.google.com) and that seems to play them fine
you can view the MTS files with VLC VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source ...
