[FFmpeg-user] mts > mp4 : can you just concatenate the mts files?

I'm trying to generate 1 mp4 file from 10 mts files. The camcorder 
generates a new mts file every 2gigs. For the recent school play, that's 
10 mts files. Googling gives all sorts of suggestions, but no clear answer.

One post suggests just cat'ing them, and not paying any attention to 
timestamp errors. I seem to remember ffmpeg being very fussy about 

Or should I take them all to dv [ ffmpeg -i inN,mts -vcodec libx264 -crf 
25 -acodec copy outN.dv ] and then cat the dv files?

Or does somebody know a better way to do this?
