Q: Are there any .TS video players for windows PC? How can I play TS file on PC? When I try to view these TS files in Windows Media Player directly, it gives an error saying “file is not supported”…

If you’re getting caught by the issues playing TS file in Windows Media Player, just read on to get possible solutions.

The TS file extension is a common one for video files(MPEG-2) that have been copied from an HDTV broadcast and then posted on the Internet. Windows PC default video player- Windows Media Player cannot play these TS files, one of the easiest way to view them is to download a new media player which can.

VLC is a free program and it can play just about all kinds of file formats. The VLC package already includes software to play MPEG-2 video content and supports opening and playing .TS files directly.

Note: If you have high definition (HD) video content in .TS format, there are some reasons why you would experience choppy playback with VLC media player. One reported issue is possible video problems when High Quality Audio Resampling is set in VLC’s settings.

To disable it, navigate to Settings –> Preferences in VLC. The Audio settings should be selected by default, however, you will have to select Advanced Settings in the lower right hand corner in order to see all the settings. Once you have done that, you will see that “High Quality Audio Resampling” is selected by default. This has been known to cause issues with playback particularly in older hardware, and at least with disabling it, it should take less processing power.
