  1. Hello,
    I'm trying to convert a .ts file to .vob using TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5, but after I have converted the file and attempt to play it, I get weird green pixels appearing on and off throughout the converted file. I have converted alot of .ts files in the past with this software without any problems, so what could be the reason for this? The .ts file I am trying to convert reportedly have these specs: MPEG4 Video (H264) 1920x1080 25fps 6189Kbps. I have tried converting both to PAL and NTSC .vob but the pixels are present in both converted files. Please help! If you need any more info please let me know what and how I go about getting it. Thanks so much for reading, any help appreciated.
    Here is an example of what these pixels look like: http://postimg.org/image/ydb3jvfhx/

    Try convert with something else like avstodvd and see if you get same problems. Avstodvd can both output dvd/vob files or mpeg2 files.

    If still same problems the ts might be corrupt and you need to fix it with for example videoredo or something.

  3. Do you see the same thing when playing the TS file? It looks like it might be a decoding problem to me, or maybe the original video is a little corrupt.

    I don't use TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works myself, but it's capable of CUDA decoding (hardware decoding with an Nvidia video card). I'm not sure about other methods. Can you change the decoding method to see what happens?

  4. Thanks for the suggestion of using avstodvd, I will try that and report back if it helped.
    PS: The pixels are not present when playing the TS file, they only appear on the converted files.
    I don't know if maybe my TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works is screwed up all of a sudden, I tried converting a mp4 HD file to VOB and while the result did not have any pixels as in the TS file, the result VOB played very bad with lots of framedrops, sort of like a strobe effect. I don't know what is wrong. I converted files a few days ago with no problems.

  5. Can't get avstodvd to work.. Getting all sorts of error messages. Here's what the log files are saying. Any ideas?

    For the little bit of time I had a cable box that recorded useable TS files, I relied on MPEG-VCR and AviDemux. MPEG-VCR to give me clean MPEG files and AviDemux to straighten out any audio sync problems.

  7. I can't help with avstodvd as I the last time I converted something to DVD format seems like a lifetime ago.

    Until someone else comes along, maybe try opening the ts file with tsmuxer and resaving it as a new ts or m2ts file.... too see if it complains about corruption or offers any errors. Even if it doesn't, sometimes just remuxing can fix problems. You could try converting the newly created ts file instead.
    Or MKVMergeGUI will open ts files and remux them as MKVs, which you could try converting instead of the original. You never know....

    You're using ffmpeg 1 pass CBR in AVStoDVD. I'd switch to a 2-pass encode using the HCenc encoder. But as others have pointed out, there may be something messed up in the .ts file.

    could you post a screenshot of 'Codecs'/'Build DirectShow Filters Graph' (from AVStoDVD main menu) of the video.ts file?
