It's a Canon HD Vixia Hg 20 camcorder, and the file format is .mts.
It has MXP, FXP, XP+, SP, and LP modes. However I had recorded some videos in MXP and some in SP mode (I only got to archive the vids in SP mode on DVDs so far; i didn't figure out how to do the ones in MXP mode). I didn't realize this until couple days ago, but the files that were shot in MXP cannot be burnt to dvds, because it had said the bitrate is not supported by DVDs. That's y I wanted to know if I can archive the videos onto a blu-ray for playback rather than DVDs, because I was told that blu-ray players can playback files with that bitrate.
