how to convert a *.ts video file to a *.mpg

posted in Encoding

I have a Satellite receiver that records movies and programs in a *.TS extension. I need a program that can convert the *.TS extension to a *MPG one?

Can you recommend an easy program to make this conversion. The file needs to be converted from the HD to the same HD.

You can try the VideoCharge, for this purpose download it from, add ts files and in Output Tab select MPEG format. reply


I too have a sattelite receiver that can record. I am using Any Video Converter to convert the .ts file into .mpg but when I go to burn it on a DVD it says “can not find .ifo and .bup files. When I endode .ts file do I need to deinterlace the .ts file in order to get the .ifo and .bup files? reply

FormatFactory, This Little Program Will Convert Just About Any Type Of File Extension To Any Other Type. reply


I had some success using HANDBRAKE with these settings:

.ts file
HANDBRAKE --> Presets: Regular/HighProfile
Container: MP4 LargeFileSize WebOptimized

--> Picture: Anamorphic: None
--> Video: MPEG-4 (FFMPEG)

It creates an MP4 file which can then be edited and rendered as you like.

Good luck.


very simple with:
download from here its free: reply


tried handbrake: it works, but the quality is so much worse than the ts-file, pity reply


If the Handbrake can’t bring you a hd video quality, try Brorsoft Video Converter. It enables you to encode MediaPortal recorded TS files to any format you want. reply


I recommend iDealshare VideoGo which can convert the *.TS extension to a *MPG one.

It also can convert TS to MP4, AVI, VOB, FLV, ProRes, WTV, MKV, WMV, MOV etc. reply


You may try use iDealshare VideoGo to convert WTV to QuickTime MOV ,it’s very easy and good. reply
