Playing "mpg-tts" files

Greetings to all,

A Toshiba TV I recently purchased saves TV shows as files with the extension "mpg-tts". Does Serviio recognize such files?

This is my first post, and would like to congratulate all members of this vibrant online community.

-Kurt

Re: Playing "mpg-tts" files

Thanks for the prompt reply Petr.

I'm afraid I have no idea how to do that. Is there wiki I can refer to?

Look at signature below on how to give information on video that will not play.

Thanks guys.

Here's the ffmpeg -i on the file.

Re: Playing "mpg-tts" files

you probably have a file with spaces in the name, you have to put quotes around the file name like:

  Code:
ffmpeg -i "c:/my video/my fil.avi"

Or ffmpeg could not identified the format!

Could you try with MediaInfo tool (see signature link)?

Re: Playing "mpg-tts" files

Yes, the file was named "test.mpg-tts", so quotes weren't needed.
MediaInfo couldn't identify it either. Oh well, I guess that's that.

While googling around, I read the following info...
This media type identifies audiovisual streams multiplexed using an
extended MPEG-2 Transport Stream packet format. For the extended format, the
packet length is increased to 192 bytes with the first 4 bytes defining an
additional time stamp for networking usage. The remaining 188 bytes
correspond to the conventional MPEG-2 TS packet.

Re: Playing "mpg-tts" files

If ffmpeg and MediaInfo can not identify the format, we can not help you anymore.
ffmpeg supports MPEG2 Transport Stream format, *.ts and *.m2ts and others.
I'm curious, can you edit the file in hexadecimal and post the first 300 bytes here.

Re: Playing "mpg-tts" files

those files are normally used by Serviio on the way out, it's either the _ISO or _T profile name. Usually Ffmpeg could identify them no problem, any chance this particular file is corrupted? Can you play it in VLC for example?

Re: Playing "mpg-tts" files

Getting late here, but I'll take your advice and try another file tomorrow just in case the first was corrupted.
VLC "plays" the file but you get a blank screen and no audio, so something in the file is not allowing it to be read. Other people have had the same experience.
