Q:-> Whilist loading an .mts file I got the message, "Unable to render video (ac3). The necessary codecs are not found." Can this problem be overcome?

The answer is yes, quite easily. This problem can happen with any media format the Splitter supports - AVI, MKV, MP4 etc., as the Splitter does not ship all kind of codecs that can be met in different videos. But in most cases user's PC has all necessary codecs and that's what the Splitter relies to. If you get a such a message as "Unable to render video (ac3). The necessary codecs are not found" just download and install such a codec and the Splitter will use it for preview.
