What's TS Format?

TS, known as Transport Stream, is a container format for MPEG, used most frequently in broadcast systems such as DVB, ATSC and IPTV. For random access in digital video cameras, recorders and players, the format is modified by adding a 4-byte timecode (TC) to standard 188-byte packets, which resulted in a 192-byte packet. This is what is informally called M2TS stream. JVC called it TOD (possibly an abbreviation for "Transport stream on disc") when used in HDD-based camcorders like GZ-HD7, the file extension is .tod. In Blu-ray Disc, the file extension is .m2ts. And in AVCHD camcorder, it is .mts.

Many applications are unfamiliar with how to decode it, since it has a very different multiplexing format than the more conventional MPEG container known as Program Stream, which is used on DVDs, and what is produced by many encoder cards.

In order to play and enjoy TS files anywhere, here, we strongly recommend to convert TS to more popular video or audio formats like MP4, AVI, MOV, MKV, MPEG, MP3, WAV, and more.
