After you take some AVCHD videos with your Sony, Panasonic or Canon camera, and try to share the funny clips on YouTube, two things may confuse you should be: “Is AVCHD supported by YouTube?” and “Will the high definition video effect be lost after the uploading?”.

Though YouTube supports a very wide variety of video codecs, audio codecs and container formats, you still can not upload your AVCHD file to YouTube.

MP4, WebM files (VP8 video codec and Vorbis audio codec), MPEG4, 3GPP and MOV files - (typically supporting h264 and MPEG4 video codecs and AAC audio codec), WMV, FLV (Adobe - FLV1 video codec, MP3 audio), AVI (many cameras output this format - typically the video codec is MJPEG and audio is PCM), MPEG-PS (typically supporting MPEG2 video codec and MP2 audio).
