ffmpeg and the TS files

Hi there. I'd like to be able to do two things with my Dreambox 7000:

1) Convert recorded stuff (in TS format) to AVI files so that even a windows machine can play ,
2) Convert AVI files to .TS format so I can watch them using Dreambox.

Are these possible with ffmpeg? If so, which options do I need?
Many thanks,
-t

1. TS files are just MPEG with some additional headers for the content (like what channel, frequency, name, etc.. - when you play back a ts on the dreambox it will show you all those details in the OSD). ffmpeg can easily convert them with

ffmpeg -i input.ts output.avi

2. Reverse the options shown above

Note vlc () on window$ can playback the ts file as-is last time i looked.

As mentioned in this thread TS file is just a mpeg stream with additional stuff, including subtitles, multiple audio streams etc. You should be be able to use the vlc wizard to select the audio stream for transcoding before you burn it. See the File->wizard menu option in vlc.

DVR Studio Pro can convert .ts files to Mpeg files thatWindows Media Player can handle. They have a 30 day free full functional test download.

Of course VLC is the most versatile player to get.

pvastrumento converts .ts to program stream with synchronised audio/video for import into a DVD authoring program or whatever else you want to do with the mpeg.

Re: ffmpeg and the TS files

If you wish to xfer the ts files on yr dreambox to PC or Mac, then I thoroughly recommend
MPEG Streamclip
Just go to
and d'load for your OS.

This s/w will open most video formats and convert to most video formats, incl H.264.
It has a built in ability to call up your dreambox (store yr LAN number) and then from the list of movies on yr dreambox hard drive, you select the one you want. It shows or plays in a window and you can edit out the bits you dont want and also remove the unwanted foreign audio tracks. You then export to whatever format you want and save to your computer hard drive.
It ships the file over, converts if necessary and writes the new version.

If you open a group of (say) mpegs on your PC, it will lay them out in sequence in the window and you can save as one movie.

It is the best bit of free mpeg software Ive come across and surprisingly not better known. PVAstrumento is no longer supported but it is also good. I use MPEG Streamclip for all sorts of video editing and re-formatting.

You can also use AutoGK :

Could some one compare MPEG Streamclip and AutoGK?

I use ProjectX and then import the files into DVD-Lab.
