Hello,

So I got a HD Recorder which records tv in .ts format. Normally I watch the recordings via the recorder itself. Sometimes I move them to a usb and edit them on my pc. Only now, I got a problem. I imported the .ts to Premiere pro and it now sees it as audio-only. But when I play it via VLC or something it just plays video and audio. I don't know why premiere pro takes only the audio from it. Can someone explain and come up with a solution.

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,

M

A ts file isn't a "standard" codec like you'd get from a camera or pass around for editing purposes ... it is a transport stream file, used by broadcasters to save bandwidth during transmission, and also the type of file included for the video portion of some DVD/Blu-Ray content if I recall correctly.

So ... it's not something editing programs necessarily work with. Occasionally, some ts files work fine in PrPro, but it depends.

What's in that ts file? How about running it onto MediaInfo, go into TreeView there, then take a screen grab of the video info section and post that back here? Then we'd know a lot more about these files you're getting from your recorder.

MediaInfo

I cut all of the (I hope) pointless stuff out of it. I hope you don't care about that. But here is the MediaInfo what you asked for.

Thanks! Yea, it's just the video section of use here.

Now that we've that info along with your original question, let's see if we can get a couple others in here to help ...

RoninEdits​ and Ann Bens​ are typically pretty good on these things, for example ...

Changing the extension didn't work. I'll let you know when it's done converting.

Four years later and this answer is still relevant! 🙂  Thanks. Converting the .ts file via HandBrake was exactly what the doctor ordered.

instead of converting/transcoding, you could try re-wrapping using a free tool like HDTVtoMPEG2.
