FourCC code?

What is the proper FourCC code for AVCHD? When I open it in VLC it's AVC1 but I don't think that's it.
I wait for the day cost-efficient global shutter 60fps capable CMOS sensors emerge for use on major manufacturers' cameras. (Sony, Canon, etc.) Rolling Shutters are a plague.

Isn't the FourCC just for AVI files?

As far as I know AVCHD files use an MPEG-2 transport stream just like HDV, except the video codec is MPEG-4 AVC.
