Kaffeine

Recommended Posts

I am using Kaffeine to capture video from terrestial Digital TV Broadcasts. It saves the capture as a .ts file. It seems that the capture is an avi codec. If that is correct, does anyone know why the file would be named TS instead of AVC and would it make any difference if It was renamed .avc ???. I have found most all video editing programs recognise .avc but none recognise .ts. Players such as Dragon Player and Totem play the files with no seeming concern.

 

Please, any ideas welcome.

 

Cheers. John.

Thanks Scarecrow.

If I burn it to a data DVD, would my friends in the US, who only use Windows, be able to play it back ???.

 

I am pleased to know what TS is now as Mpeg, and not AVC.

 

Cheers. John.

If it doesn't play properly on the windows media player (I'm not sure), they can always install the VLC player for windows.

It would seem then that a number of players for Windows can handle TS.

So that clears that up.

Now what Mandriva or Linux programs can convert the .ts to mpeg-2 in Mandriva ??? as mentioned could be done within a Windows application.

 

Cheers. John.

The latest versions of VLC surely can.

In a few cases, you can just change the extension from .ts to .mpg without converting anything.

Thanks scarecrow, I will install vlc and see how it turns out. I note your other comment about renaming to mpg and see what transpires.

 

Cheers. John.
