.ts file convesion

Asked by Martin Davitt on 2018-12-31

I wish to convert .ts files from my Humax personal video recorder, and burn to a DVD to be played by most common dvd players.
I am completely new to the Ubuntu platform, I am able to open the Utility launcher and am confident to add instructions.
Can you suggest the most reliable free software available for me to install, with a step by step guide.
Thank you.

I suggest that you try the VLC media player.
If it isn't already installed, you can install it easily from Ubuntu's software sources.
And it has the capability of playing and converting several different file formats.
As far as I know, .ts is one of them.

If you use the 'file' command in the terminal to query the file, what is the output. Eg:

file ~/Downloads/filename.ts

What is the output (Obviously change the actual file name). Just giving the file extension doesn't tell us much in Linux. The file extension doesn't mean as much as it does in Windows.

Can you help with this problem?
