    I got .tsp's (mpeg format) playing in MPlayer/Ubuntu. It's extracted from DVR HDD, onto disks formatted NTFS, and mounted with NTFS-3g.

    Video is great. Audio changes to at least 3 channels. One channel was good audio, but included a 'narrarative' of the action. Another channel played good audio only (commercial). A third channel, during the primary video (movie), prompted language selection of the playing device.

    I think this is a codec problem...

    What do I need to do?


    (the file plays properly in 'Media Player Classic' when Windows is booted)

    mplayer problem. Pressing # should cycle through the audio channels,

    from the man page
    -aid <ID> (also see -alang)
    Select audio channel (MPEG: 0-31, AVI/OGM: 1-99, ASF/RM: 0-127, VOB(AC3): 128-159, VOB(LPCM): 160-191, MPEG-TS 17-8190). MPlayer prints the available audio IDs when run in ver‐
    bose (-v) mode. When playing an MPEG-TS stream, MPlayer/MEncoder will use the first program (if present) with the chosen audio stream.

    -alang <language code[,language code,...]> (also see -aid)
    Specify a priority list of audio languages to use. Different container formats employ different language codes. DVDs use ISO 639-1 two letter language codes, Matroska and NUT
    use ISO 639-2 three letter language codes while OGM uses a free-form identifier. MPlayer prints the available languages when run in verbose (-v) mode.

    mplayer dvd://1 -alang hu,en
    Chooses the Hungarian language track on a DVD and falls back on English if Hungarian is not available.
    mplayer -alang jpn example.mkv
    Plays a Matroska file in Japanese.
    You could also try VLC.
