Hello!

I can´t play .ts files with mp.
When i try to play a .ts file it just blinks ones and nothing happens.

I use MP 0.2.0 test version and cvs-11-05-2005--14-02

Do you want playback a DVD-copie from harddisk ?
If so, it´s corrct that MP won´t play it, becaus video_ts is a *.ifo file and that holds some information about the *.vob from the DVD and not a video-file.

Solution should be:
creating a image as DVD-Video and let MP mount it by Daemon Tools
or
extract the vob to mpeg (there is a freeware solution, i´ll look for it later)and run the mpeg directly

    The HDTV pump filter did the job for me at the time, and it still does in the directshow applications I've tested (including GraphEdit). However, now MP has its own 'TsFileSource.ax' for the playback of .ts files, I no longer have sound. Initial diagnostics suggest the audio stream is picked up as AC3, while it is in fact MPEG. But, since the MP team are working hard on transport stream related issues I'll wait until they think it should be ready for use and then test again. MP now uses dvr-ms again for recordings and I've converted my existing .ts files to .dvr-ms using the 'tsconverter' utility that can be found here.

    hi AberDino,

    Initial diagnostics suggest the audio stream is picked up as AC3, while it is in fact MPEG.

    Is it possible that there is an AC3 stream just nothing on it? TSFileSource default setting for audio is preferred AC3 so you may need to uncheck the option on its property page to revert to MPEG audio.

    Hi bear,

    I would say that is unlikely, as I don't think AC3 is included in UK terrestrial freeview broadcasts. But, I'll have a look at the TsFileSource property page when I get home tonight. I'll also have a look at the filter that's used in other directshow applications.

    I also experienced loss of sound (UK dvb-t).

    I was using CVS from 18/10/05 for a while which was good, but at some point after this (and prior to switch back to dvr-ms) I found the cvs builds lost sound.

    I'm now using latest cvs builds again (with dvr-ms).
    A slight aside, I had been using DSCALER audio with .TS, but with .dvr-ms DSCALER introduced big stuttering when viewing a program being recorded. Using another codec was ok. No worries, as I know dvr-ms is a temporary thing.

    Cheers,
    BigJ.

    I believe DMAN_LFC is part of the dev team and uses DVB-t in the UK. Maybe he can test it too and possibly report a solution, or confirm it as a bug. I can provide more details if required.

    I tested with the DVBPortal HDTV Pump Filter and now i can play .ts files in Windows media player but not in mp
    The same as before when i try to play a .ts file it just blinks one time and nothing happens after no error i can still brows the list of files after.

    it could works afterall i can watch the files in WMP
    and the .ts is listed with all other files in MP like .avi .mpg....

    mp does not seem to allow the use of the MS MPEG2 Demultiplexer when its used with push source filters. I suggest you revert mp to use its own internal source filter for .ts files.

    If you need a seperate media player that can use these push source filters then have a look at Zoomplayer.

    hi AberDino,

    I would say that is unlikely, as I don't think AC3 is included in UK terrestrial freeview broadcasts.

    If this is the case then its most likely a private stream that has been identified as AC3. No doubt that this relates to a difference in the DVB standards between countries. It would have been nice if they all agreed on a single standard.

    No this setting is disabled I have disabled this as suggested. I doubt it will change anything but I will give it a go. I was hoping that the supplied log files "might" pinpoint the issue?

    In gathering logs for my radio stream problem, I noticed that I had hundreds of ts_reader and ts_writer files - apparently a new one every time MP starts (which is every day at 5am). This has the look of some long forgotten debug effort. Any clue how to stop this as this point (other than command file delete before startup)? No...

    Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'll have to do a bit of work then! Of course the other option is to have a mini PC connected to the TV and use MP2 on that instead of via Kodi. Something for the future perhaps.
