VideoReDo TV Suite v4.

.TS files are transport streams from HDTV, and utilize MPEG-2 compression inside.

You can, for example, re-package the .TS file into MPG form with 100% retention of original digital content, i.e. the underlying MPEG-2 datastream.

So use VideoRedo to (1) open the .TS video, and (2) select the entire video or edit it if you want to remove commercials, etc., (3) add the one or more "scenes" you mark, and then (4) SAVE AS... and choose MPG format. All the scene(s) you added will be combined into one output MPG file with MPEG-2 in the underlying data, with ZERO re-compression.

I concur. This will convert .ts into almost any format you like and it is fast.

I repeat... VideoRedo TV Suite WILL do ZERO re-compression on the conversion from TS to MPG.

These are both simply "wrapper" formats, with the underlying internal data compressed with MPEG-2 in both formats.

VideoReDo will do NOTHING to the underlying MPEG-2 data. It simply "re-wraps" the MPEG-2 inner contents of the TS file with a new external MPG wrapper.

In fact, the progress dialog during the conversion will show "fast frame copy", confirming that ZERO RE-COMPRESSION is occurring during the re-wrap process.

Try it. Download and install it for trial. It's a very highly regarded product. You'll like it (ask questions if you can't understand something about how to use it... either here, or on their Forum, which is answered by the author).

Certainly you care about what the extension is? If not, why not keep it in .ts.

I assume you must want to play on some non PC device, in which case you likely have specific format requirements beyond not .ts.

You just want to change the container?

MKVmerge can do this. just add the .ts file as the Video stream, and again for the Audio stream. It will de-mux the raw video and audio and put it into a MKV container.
No recoding, so no quality loss.

Another option is MP4 if its 4GB or less. MP4box will work the exact same way as MKVmerge.
You'll need MP4box, and if you want UI, YAMB is pretty good.


Buit as Snowdog mentioned, depending what you are wanting to do there may be additional requirements.
Some of which may be not only the the Video or Audio Codec inside the container, but the settings used for the Video/Audio streams themselves. (For example must be 4ref frames or lower. If the current file has 6 for example, it will not work regardless what container its in)

You've checked this thread as "resolved".

What program did you end up using in the end?

And into what converted output file format did you create from the input TS file?

Also, to what program or device is this converted file intended to be fed?

(Just curious, for closure)

I am also curious to know what the OP has done.

I was also thinking on the same line - putting the contents of the .ts file into an mkv container without any encoding but didn't know which prog could do it.

After reading your post and just to tryout, I downloaded a 435MB sample .ts file of a open movie project (70 Mbps,1920*1080@24fps MPEG2; 384Kbps 48KHz 16bits 2 channel AC3). When trying to add the .ts file to mkvmerge GUI v4.9.1, I only get a message that .ts is not a supported format. So what next?

Using Freemake Video converter however I could make a good quality BD M2TS file by clicking on "to bluray" conversion button and also good quality mkv file.

M2TS file:maximum possible video bitrate for the AVC 39 Mbps Audio bitrate 224 Kbps AC3 File size: 238MB

MKV file:maximum possible video bitrate for the AVC 32Mbps Audio bitrate 224Kbps AC3 File size: 187MB
