M2TS

The .m2ts file extension is used to store BDAV MPEG-2 files that can be streamed from Blu-Ray discs in order to provide "picture-in-picture" DVD effects. "Picture-in-Picture" affects allow a user to view to separate video files on a single screen.The M2TS files are actually container files that store other media data. The files can be burned to Blu-ray discs for viewing on Blu-ray players and can also be played in the PS3 gaming system that is distributed by Sony.

MPEG-2

MPEG-2 is a standard for "the generic coding of moving pictures and associated audio information".It describes a combination of lossy video compression and lossy audio data compression methods. While MPEG-2 is not as efficient as newer standards such as H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC, backwards compatibility with existing hardware and software means it is still widely used, for example in over-the-air digital television broadcasting and in the DVD-Video standard.
