I am not sure the answer to your question but I am sure somebody will respond soon. When they do I would like to add a question on the .ts files. Isn't .ts a mpg format anyway. I thought is was kind of a way cable/dish companies stream HD content?? so if that is the case is it possible to just rename the .ts to .mpg?? Also I am wondering why you would really need to do this. If you are trying to put it on a DVD thats a bad idea because you will loose the HD resolution. You would be better off just getting the DVD. Or are you trying to work with it in a video edit program or something like that? Either way sorry for piggy-backing on your thread.

HDTVtoMPEG2 is your new best friend

I convert ".ts" files to MPEG-2 all the time. .ts files are actually just a special MPEG-2 file. You don't have to fully re-encode the file. You can convert a file in a few minutes. It think it has to do with the way the file is formatted.

You are right.

Een MPEG2 encoded video/audio. is an stream of bits, without any limitation in length. A special group of bits indicates the beginning of the stream and another one the end. But you can start at any place in the stream to start viewing. There are 2 ways to format the same encoded video/audio.

* Program stream. This method is used for storing the mpeg stream on fixed media, e.g. a DVD or hard disk. The assumption is that the media is very reliable and the chance of a read error is very low. File extensions for these kind of streams are e.g. .mpg , .mpeg, .mpv (video only), m2v (video only), mpa (audio only), mp2 (audio only), .ac3 (dolby ac3 onlly), and .vob (for DVD).
* Transport stream. Fix sized packets (most of the time 188 bytes), which is used for less reliable media, i.e. broadcasting or videotape (e.g. D-VHS HD). there are additional bytes for error correction purposes added to the 188 bytes before the transmission or recording tape. Your receiver or tapedeck use these bits to correct single and mutiple bits on the fly, to recreate the correct 188 byte packets. File extensions are e.g. .ts or .m2t.

Therefore you can, without any loss, convert mpeg video/audio to a program stream (PS) and transport stream (TS) format and the other way around.

You only have to convert a stream, when your target application or equipement is not able to handle either the PS or TS.

I hope that I have clarified a little bit the difference between the format of a TS and PS.

The other difference is that a PS can only have 1 audio stream and subtitle track encoded while a TS can have multiple audio and subtitles in the same stream.

I've tried to convert a .ts file to mpg in HDTV2MPEG, but the process failed because the program insisted that the file was a 0 byte file.
I tried to demux the file too, with only the sound file as a result. The video mysteriously disappear.

So my first question is, wtf is going on?

The reason for me trying to do this, is that the 19,5Mbps ts stream is really jittery when played in VLC. I got a XPS laptop with 2.16GHz core 2 duo, 2 GB ram and a 7950 GTX video card.

My second question: Should I be able to play the stream, or would it help to convert it?

Most video players will play a .ts with no trouble. No need to convert a thing really. Maybe try another player. MPlayer for windows will have no trouble at all with a .ts.

Meh, I've tried around 10 players, everyone jitter. I guess there something wrong with the stream itself. All media conversion programs I've tried comes up with some error message too.

Ah..too bad, it was the 1080i version of BBC's excellent Planet Earth series. Anyone got a link to a working version PM me, please. No worries, it's non-commercial, the british tax payers paid for it, so no piracy-mongering

I downloaded the HDTVtoMPEG2 app, but when I "Add" one of the TS files on the HDD of my PVR, I get an error indicating "Could not find a Channel!", and I can get no further. Any advice/suggestions?

I seem to have the most luck using VideoReDo to extract subchannels out of a .ts file.

If your .ts file is already just one file with the subchannels removed though, then the freeware program HDTVtoMPEG2 is probably your best bet.
