How can I convert an .mts file to mp3? I would like to export just an audio clip (2 minutes) to an mp3 file. I have deleted the video in the timeline but it still leaves a 91Mb file - far too big of course to usefully use. Is there a way please?

However, there is a limit on upload file size. You can only upload a file up to 100MB. If you want to convert a larger file, you need to pay for that. Please read the Zamar Plans to learn more about the charge. And it requires a stable network environment to do conversion on Zamzar.
The second online video conversion service we are able to find for you is the Convert.Files. It is offered at absolutely no charge and without the need to download additional software. It also works with a wide range of file types including MTS as input and MP3 as output also. But it is just capable of processing files up to 250MB.

If you need to convert larger video files, you can turn to VideoToolbox.com, anther premium file conversion service by ConvertFiles team.
VideoToolbox and Convert.Files are families as we mentioned above. It converts your files between all of the popular video formats (MTS to MP3 included).
