  1. Hi all , yesterday i have been here looking for answers to my problem here with a TS file i captured from a tv show .
    I spend all afternoon installing demuxers and remuxers , mpeg repairs and nothing went right here .
    I have looked also some other threads here with an identical issue and followed the steps but didnt went good for me
    First i wanna say that this ts file plays good on vcl media player without any faults .

    Anyway here it is a brief specification of errors i get using most programs here :

    Programs tested :
    Mpeg2repair - cant get pids for audio and video on any programs in software
    Convertxtodvd4 - lazy conversion to mp4 but without sound also
    Tsmuxer - Message "Some tracks not recongnized , bla bla bla " i can get video output but no audio also
    hdtv2mpeg - message "Could not find a channel"
    tsremux - I can get the video but no audio demuxed to m2ts file correctly
    xilisoft hd video converter - I can get the video conversion but no audio
    Projectx - cant touch it even change it to m2p , and gives errors on dgindex ,but shows the audio pid and video but says "picture decoding not possible no preview to mpeg-4/h.264"
    DGindex- "No video sequencer header found"
    Megui - i do the updates then give me error on trying to open the main exe file witch as been renamed after the updates to --app !!!!
    AutoMKV093- shows the audio pids but when i try to convert them it stops with errors (never start the conversion)

    any ideas how to solve this problem ?

    If you mean VLC, then try converting it with VLC . If it can play it , it should be able to convert it

  4. strange , it converts as PS file , i converted it to mp4 and the program saved it as PS extension .
    I renamed it as mp4 and only vlc plays it , the windows media player dont touch it .
    I am trying to mpeg 2 conversion now , it is saving also as ps file the conversion .
    at the end i will rename as mpg to see .

  5. ok , tested almost all formats conversion in vlc and result is that vlc grab the video but not the audio , vlc only bringa the audio using "dump raw data" witch creates an exact copy of the original file witch i cant use anywhere .
    Here are some infos on the codecs of both videos , the original and then the converted by vlc :

    this next info is from the dum raw data on vlc conversion witch made an absolute copy from the original :

  6. Can you post a video sample? How did you cap/record this ?
    Quote Quote  
  7. i recorded the ts file from digital tv to usb hard disk witch is connected directly to the tv reciever , all capture is done by the reciever , no pc is envolved in this .
    The original file is 1.7G !!!!! and i cant edit it .
    If i split as tssplit to 15M files and upload 1 of the parts is enought for you to test ?
    If not then let me know witch program shall i use to upload a sample to you

    thanks

    Howdy,

    I regularly convert .ts DVB captures to .mkv using Freemake Video Converter. It might not work for you, but it is worth a try. .ts files are not a supported file type when you go to video - open, but scroll down the filetype list to 'all files', select it & you'll be able to open your .ts file.

    If you want to edit the .ts to remove commercials etc. the only thing I found works well enough to use on a regular basis is Video ReDo. It isn't free, but after spending hours mucking around with different freeware I was prepared to pay whatever it took.

    Hope this helps.

  10. thanks for the tips , i will try those programs and see the result .
    I always have an option to get the videos i want from those files that i can not reencode , but since they play on vlc i can always recapture the videos again using 1 pc to play the vlc on the extended monitor and other pc to capture from hdmi or svideo , but i will never get the orgiginal capture quality .
    Ususally i capture tv videos with my avermedia pci capture card witch can capture from digital tv to uncompressed avi , mpg 2 , mp4 but this time i wanted to try the digital reciever to compare qualities beetween pc and reciever .
    Well this time i didnt had much luck , lol .
    No stress , i will try those programs , if they work then perfectly , if not then i recapture again the videos thru my input video card .
    thanks for the tips and ill let you guys know the results of those last programs even for persons later that may have the same problem .

    Thanks again .

  13. Hi,

    I'm working on an open source tool to process these kinds of TS recordings, and would be very interested in getting a small sample for testing if you're willing to upload it somewhere.

    Thanks.

  14. the problem is i upload 1.7G
    i recorded a few ts files , i will see if others are giving the same problem and i upload the smallest one .
    Give me a day or 2 and ill post here the link .

    Thanks a lot for sharing that.

    The slightly unusual thing about that recording is that it contains AAC audio in LATM framing. In addition, it only appears to have the full LATM header for every 4th audio packet, which is something I wasn't aware was possible. I think the intention is that parsers should re-use the header from the previous packets. So simple LATM parsers will fail on the first packet which is missing the header - which currently includes my program but I intend to fix it.

    My tool (which I'm currently calling "tsfixer" as I intend to incorporate more TS processing options to it) converts the AAC-in-LATM audio to AAC-in-ADTS, which is more widely supported. tsmuxer for example supports AAC-in-ADTS but not AAC-in-LATM. Because LATM headers are generally larger than ADTS headers, it is able to do this "in-place" inside the transport stream packets, and hence keep all the original timing information and data streams (subtitles etc) that are normally lost when you demux and remux the stream.

    I'm curious to know if anyone reading this will find this tool useful. I'm writing it for my own use, but if others will have a use for it, I'll release it sooner rather than later (it's open source and written in C, so can be compiled for almost any platform, including Linux, Windows and OS X).

    Some background to why I'm writing this is in this thread:

  18. I will use it for sure if youhave it compiled for windows and a tool like that you are biulding is very usefull in cases like mine where almost everything didnt worked .
    My case only video redo worked and converted it .
    The conversion was very good but it losses always quality compared with the original file .
    A tool like yours we can fix these files somehow to demux them in separated parts as audio and video .
    Please , if you can build an exe after finish it it will be awesome for many people that have these kind of mpeg transport stream files like mine .

    Thanks a lot for all your work , is very appreciated by me and i also believe for many others here that will need it in future .

    Certainly a tool like that will be quite useful, I may even compile a MinGW build and host it on my Skydrive folder, if you don't mind of course.

    Thanks, but I would prefer it to have a single permanent homepage so that people won't download out of date versions in error. I'll include a mingw-compiled Windows exe. I can't stop you mirroring it if you wish though - it will be released under the GPL.

    Once I get it working with pedroam's sample stream, I'll upload a beta version. I'm sure there are a lot more samples it will fail on...

  22. I was going to suggest video redo until I saw it was suggested above. I've had great luck with that program, remuxing the streams recorded by my computer into dvd compliant mpgs.

  23. I know, this is an old thread, converting .ts files seem to be subject of a regular discussion.

    There are some Youtube videos as well (xilisoft/avs4you)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdxrih8rqu8
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRDFTMePTTY

    Bottomline, whilst being new to this stuff
    what tools to use to convert the .ts files (with an absolute minimum on quality loss)
    and
    to what fileformat, that will continue to exist over a longer period of time.

    TIA

  24. to what fileformat, that will continue to exist over a longer period of time.
    Doesn't really matter mp4/mkv/ts will all be around for quite some time. (even .avi and .mpg (and VCD) are still around, so I doubt that I will see the day when one of the standardized formats will vanish completely)

    what tools to use to convert the .ts files (with an absolute minimum on quality loss)
    I would simply repack to mkv or mp4 to same some overhead and get rid of 'stuffing bits'. Other than that, if you want to recompress, look into the tools section of the board and use the tool you like the most, for simple re-compression without special filtering&co most tools should be fine.

  25. Thanks!

    I guess the easiest way is to just use AVS4YOU and then option to DVD, standard quality.

    Haven't checked out VideoRedo yet, so I am not sure if, after editing a .ts file, it will offer to convert it to
    MP4, VOB or whatever.
    It says : Auto conversion of HD to SD on their 'compare'-page: http://www.videoredo.com/en/Compare.htm


    Anyway, thanks again.

  26. Later ... I gave it a try to delete ads from a .ts file and save it to MPEG2 or MPEG4 but have a lot of options.

    Being an absolute newbie I am not sure what to choose (I donot care about the filesize).

    I wish the file can be played by all players and best quality.

    I have now selected M.264 MP4 for a conversion, but why not MPEG-4 *.mp4 (4th from the bottom)
    or MPEG2 *.mpg (1st one).

    Played back by "all players"? Huh!
    Then you should choose the most common fileformat MPEG2 but not TS.

    The quality of the target depends then on the tool(s) you have used to crop out the ads.
    *** Now that you have read me, do some other things. ***
    Quote Quote  
  28. Yeah, well, 'most' players.

    What I meant is that there a number of option with fileformat mp4.

    I did a try with mpg
    5GB .ts file, I deleted some ads at the start and end and converted to MPG : result 4GB (was done very quickly)
    did the same to H.264 MP4 : result 2.9GB

    Then again, I am not sure of H.264 MP4 is 'common' enough that it can be played by most players, including windows media player (that I donot use)

    Many set top boxes "encrypts" the video so it might be hard to get it playing.

    But try open the tsv with tsmuxer and see if it reads it. Output a new .ts and try play it.
