    I have a camcorder with videos in .mts format. It plays in vlc but it's EXTREMELY laggy. So how do i view a mts like a avi. (I mean like perfect)
    A also run a vista.

    hmmm, do you have the latest version of vlc? Have you tried a different media player like Media player classic via the k lite codec pack? Theres also the option of compressing it into another container like mp4 or mkv.

    is the .mts file an hd file? Can your laptop run 720p hd files?

    have you tried updating vlc before bothering to convert it? How about trying media player classic?

    you can either right click the video file>properties>frame width, height

    or go to vlc and select file properties and that should also give you the frame size.

    Is your laptop HD ready? The video recorder that you used does it record in hd?

    I think it's more likely the conversion (to AVI) that's laggy rather than your media player or hardware. first have a look at the playback directly on the camcorder (using it's viewer) to get a general idea of the minimum framerate you should expect. Then try a better multimedia converter.

    If it's still laggy, then try borrowing someone else's computer to see if it's just you.
