    Hi,

    i am looking for a tool able to convert some ts files to mp4.

    These ts files contain a H264 (mpeg4 avc) video stream and a AAC sound track

    Only the ts container shall be converted to mp4, not the video nor audio stream which shall stay untouched.

    I tried many tools but all of them encode the video and audio stream.

    avidemux should be able to do the job since there is an option "copy" for both video and audio but unfortunately it always crashs.

    Thanks
    joel

    Maybe you can try demux the audio and video tracks with tsmuxer and remux with mymp4boxgui or yamb to a mp4.
    Or
    ffmpeg -i video.ts -acodec copy -vcodec copy new.mp4

    But you migh get sync issues..ts h264 conversions/remuxing isn't that simple.

    Hi
    Use FFmpeg like this:
    Code:
    ffmpeg -i foo.ts -c copy foo.mp4
    Or use WinFF with (my) "Pass Thru mp4" preset.
    Information here ---> https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/343895-Pass-Thru-presets-for-WinFF

    HandBrake reads TS files no problem, can output to MKV or MP4.

    I use the CLI to encode to the desired codecs and container. Works a charm.

    MkvToMp4 can repack ts to mp4 without converting.

    I have found that handbrakecli and the latest FFMPEG can reliably read MTS & TS files, and encode from that. I can also repack audio and video into an MKV with codec copy & FFMPEG if so desired. The problem I had prior was OLDER versions of both.

    Cheers,
    Andrew

  8. I need the same thing. What conversion tool can convert ts to mp4 and make it compatible with Sony Vegas?
    Quote Quote  
  9. Vegas should load TS file, it is more like what is inside of that TS container, post mediainfo of that TS file, maybe someone will have an idea whats wrong ...

    before anything I'd just tried to load your TS file into TsMuxer and mux it again, or better demux it first and then mux streams again

    Try vlc. Media>convert/save... Have used it to convert to and from certain containers; original audio and video streams remain untouched.
    For the nth time, with the possible exception of certain Intel processors, I don't have/ever owned anything whose name starts with "i".

    I can create a mediainfo file if someone is interested. I'm using .ts files I have created using Hauppauge Capture with a HD PVR 2. I tried TsMuxer, it didn't work for me. I also tried saving a file with VLC, didn't work for me either.

    I want (even my player plays ts file nicely - but for others) convert a ts stream file into mp4 file w/o reencoding it. It was downloaded from there:
    http://www.ceskatelevize.cz/porady/10408111009-cesky-zurnal/214562262600003-matrix-ab/
    By using YTD 1.52: http://www.pepak.net/ytd/youtube-downloader/

    The resulting file is 2G big (2 078 509 200 bytes) and I would like to create a mp4 file from it, so I can be replayed easily by others (uploading to YouTube seems to work).

    Now at first, I tried the FFMpeg ways mentioned there:
    ffmpeg -i x.ts -c copy x.mp4
    ffmpeg -i x.ts -acodec copy -vcodec copy x.mp4

    Both failed with this:

    Code:
    encoder         : Lavf57.2.100
        Stream #0:0: Video: h264 ([33][0][0][0] / 0x0021), yuv420p, 1280x720 [SAR 1:

        Stream #0:1(ces): Audio: aac ([64][0][0][0] / 0x0040), 44100 Hz, stereo, 118

    Conversion failed!
    So then I turned my attention to the tsMuxeR tool. It open the file rather nicely, BUT it let me choose only these outputs:
    TS muxing (is not that the original?!)
    M2TS muxing (not mp4, useless for me)
    Blue-ray ISO (not mp4, useless)
    Blue-ray folder (even more useless)
    AVCHD folder (now come on...)
    Demux (uhm...)

    ...and that it is. How can I get a mp4 from this is beyond me... but maybe I do something wrong?


    Next step was Virtual Dub external encoder. I never tried it before, but looks like that it is kinda easy to do, when using someone vdprof files and external encoders. Used guides there:
    https://encodingtalk.com/threads/virtualdub-save-direct-to-mp4-fraps-to-youtube-with-e...encoders.2446/
    http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=171141
    ...and got it to work, but it says that I cannot use direct stream copy, witch was what I tried from the beginning:



    Reencoding does work, tough.


    Suggestions welcome.

    And what happens if you do as ffmpeg suggests?

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i x.ts -c:a copy -c:v copy -bsf:a aac_adtstoasc x.mp4
    I'm the developer behind FFQueue. My posts might reflect this! ;-)

    You can demux it in that tsMuxer and then mux those streams (video and audio) into mp4 using mp4boxgui

    Converted into playable mp4 file. There is a audio offset, but that happen to me many times with mp4 files (probably some decoder related bug, so I fix that by just VirtualDub and passing thru the mp4 file with direct copy of video and encoding the audio to mp3 / lame and that it is. Works! Many thanks!



    _Al_ - interesting possibility. Maybe next time...? Thank you!

    The Video to video converter is better and more accurate software than the above mentioned examples.
