  2. You have to multiplex (mux, =combine) the single streams into a new container (ts, mp4, mkv, avi.. .).
    This can be done by g.e. clever Ffmpeg-GUI, mkvtoolnix, avidemux and other apps.

    If this streaming site is supported by the Video DownloadHelper add-on for your browser, you can possibly download it in one complete file when you use its Companion App (which is basically ffmpeg, used to multiplex the separately received streams).

  9. There is no need to recode this files.
    Use mkvtoolnix, start it, drag and drop both ts files into the upper window, select remux from the menu list and execute it.
    You have a new mkv file now with both video and audiostream incorporated.
    In case your TV cant play mkv you can remux this ts files into a mp4 container with clever Ffmpeg-GUI.

  10. Hi.
    Have managed to remux the 2 files into an avi which will play on my tv.
    But its out of sync.The video and audio files are different lengths.
    Can they be cropped and remuxed again?

    Play the avi with vlc player. In the tools menue, track synchronization, Audio track synchronization.
    Try different values here (start with +1 sec) with 1 sec steps for beginning, until A/V is in synch.
    If the value isnt to big, you can remux the video with the audiodelay you found.

    Then it's better to learn how to use ffmpeg directly -- I still use VDH sometimes to detect a video stream, but never bothered with the so-called "companion app" -- first of all, I hate the word "app" with a passion, then indeed it's only a fancy stupid name for ffmpeg doing the stuff under-the-hood, and it doesn't give you any control over what is actually being done, and last but not least these add-ons can break at any moment with no warning (such as what happened a few years back with the Firefox Quantum debacle, when suddenly, following a single fateful update, hundreds of add-ons stopped working, most of which died there and then as their developpers deemed that it was too much hassle to rewrite from scratch their little creation painstakingly made during their ever shrinking spare time). So, even as a beginner, it's best to stick as much as possible with time-proven tools and methods which allow you to know what you're actually doing and, if needed, to request help based on precise and verbose information.


    Have managed to use the mkv tool but wouldnt play on my smart tv.
    Based on the MediaInfo report, this may be the cause :
    Code:
    Frame rate mode : Variable
    Standalone players don't like videos flagged as having a "variable framerate". Since most videos flagged as such have in fact a constant framerate, it could be fixed with no re-encoding. I had this issue once (an otherwise regular MKV file made from a standard DVD couldn't be played on my brother's BRD player), and I managed to solve it by applying the proper (constant) framerate using TSMuxer, then re-muxing the video with MKVToolNix (MKVToolNix alone could not fix this -- it may have changed in the mean time, it was around 2015).

  13. Can't get anywhere with VLC.
    Have remuxed all the ts video/audio files into 1 mkv file.
    They,re all out of sync(between 3 & 4 seconds)
    Anything else I can try?
