Can a DVD with AVCHD Content be Played in a Regular DVD Player?


No, traditional DVD players do not include the capability to decode AVCHD and lack high definition outputs. While most DVD players will simply eject a DVD encoded with AVCHD content, some DVD players might get stuck and not eject it or possibly erase the disc without warning, so never put a DVD encoded with AVCHD content in a regular DVD player.
