Problem with .TS file
on Sep 12, 2009 at 2:59:39 pm

Hi all,

I'm having an issue trying to convert a .TS 1080i file using MPEG Streamclip. The file uses the h264 codec, and plays ok in VLC.

I can load the file into Streamclip, but when I try and export to Quicktime for use in FCP, I get an error message stating "can't find the first frame".

If I choose "convert to MPEG..." it creates a tiny .mov file that won't open in any player or FCP.

I'm at a loss to know what to do here, and any help would be appreciated.

It's me, David, again Peter...

You might want to try DVDxDV. It sometimes works for me when Streamclip won't.

It's $29, not free like Streamclip, but there is a free trial available at:

You most likely don't need the more expensive pro version...
