    VLC shows a time progress bar when playing M2TS files on my PC, but no audio or video appears. The files were recorded by a Sony Bravia TV on a USB memory stick.
    Has anyone else had this issue?

    I don't see anything regarding video or audio codecs.
    Looking for something similar to this.
    In this case, the video is AVC and the audio is AC3.
    Yours says it's only 11 MB, perhaps upload to a file share and post the link?

    m2ts is a variant of a proprietary M$ codec and is more usually found inside an .asf container.. IF you can find a m2s4 codec (think cccp has one) it should at least attempt to play something. The actual codec comes bundled with many others.. strange that you don't already have it.. maybe it's a missing one in VLC.. which should really be reported to the developersx as it's a common enough codec on them blu junk disks

    Most of my m2ts files are from Blu-rays directly, with VC-1 codec. But some camcorders seem to shoot in M2TS format with AVCHD structure or so. I guess you may narrow down the codec first.
