Get SAT-Receiver ts recordings to work on Windows 8.1 and Mavericks 10.9

Summary: This tutorial will teach you how to convert .ts file from SAT-Receiver to .mp4 file for playback on PC/Mac.



Question 1:

I have a .ts file from a Humax Satellite Receiver and when I try to open it I get the following error: Video Program Stream Not Found. I have tried changing the settings below but it has made no difference.

1) Ignore Transport Stream Maps
2) Number of times a PMT has to be read when opening a file
3) MBytes to scan at file open

I have uploaded an example to the FTP site. How to get these ts files playable? Any help much appreciated.

Question 2:

I'm unfamiliar with "TS" format and a Google search gives me mainly adverts, shareware and posts in other forums. Ideally I'd like to buy some software that would convert between several formats. I want to view SAT-Receiver recorded TS film on PC and Mac.

If you shoot some ts files with SAT-Receiver, you may find that these videos are not recognized by your media player on PC/Mac, thus it could not be synced or streamed well.

To solve this problem the best solution is to convert SAT-Receiver TS to H.264 MP4/MOV format, which is the most widely accepted by all phones and tablets. Here I would like to demonstrate the quick steps for converting SAT-Receiver TS to PC/Mac.

First and for the most, you need to choose a professional app- the MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac and MTS/M2TS Converter as our assistant. It can finish the entire task with super high speed and keep the output files in good quality simultaneously.

How to Play SAT-Receiver recorded TS film on PC/Mac with best video quality

Step 1: Import SAT-Receiver TS footage.

Run the SAT-Receiver Converter for Win/Mac, click "Add video" or "Add from folder" button to load TS recording videos from SAT-Receiver to the program, or also support to drag and drop .ts files to the program.



Step 2: Choose H.264 MP4 as output format.

In “Format” drop down list box, you may select best video format for plaing.

To convert SAT-Receiver TS to MP4 format, if you want to get common MP4 files for playback, you can choose Common Video -> H.264 Video (*.mp4); if you want to get HD MP4 files to use, you can choose HD Video -> H.264 HD Video (*.mp4).





Tips: This AVCHD Converter for Win/Mac has added 3D profiles in Format menu. (Side-by-Side, Top-Bottom, or Anaglyph 3D in MKV/MP4/MOV/WMV/AVI)



If you want to get 3D video for output, choose from the "Format" drop-down list, you are suggested to follow the path "3D Video > MP4 Side-by-Side 3D Video(*.mp4)" for converting 3D MTS to side-by-side 3D MP4 video. You'd better get a 3D player installed and 3D glasses are also needed.


Step 3. Attach subtitles to a video/movie. (Optional)

Find "Edit" icon and then click it, you will find video editor. There you can Trim, Crop, Add watermark and Effect. Above all, Subtitle can be added here.

Step 4. Start SAT-Receiver TS to MP4 conversion.

Click "Convert" button to start conversion. After conversion, you can click "Open output folder" to quick location converted videos, and then you can use converted MP4 files for playback on PC/Mac easiliy and smoothly.

Get AVCHD footage from Sony HDR-SR12 to work with FCP smoothly


Summary: Here is a quick step by step process to get your AVCHD footage from Sony HDR-SR12 to work with FCP smoothly.





Sony HDR-SR12 :

As the leader in the high-definition camcorder category, Sony is further expanding the industry with the introduction of a new HD camcorder model. Sony HDR-SR12 hard drive camcorder is based on AVCHD technology and feature full 1920 x 1080 high-definition recording for outstanding clarity and detail. It delivers the highest HD resolution available without sacrificing recording times. And features a new high-profile encoding system to optimize encoding efficiency. And, because HDR SR12 is based on the industry-standard MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video codec, it enters the market compatible with many third-party editing suites, however not including Final Cut Pro.

I became a Mac user just a few days ago, when I bought a MacBook Pro. Now I'm trying out the trial of Final Cut Pro X 10.0.0.1 with my Sony HDR-SR12. I have problems getting my MTS-files to/imported to Final Cut Pro X. I've read the help over and over again, searched on Google and youtube, and in this forum. Nothing seems to help me. This is what I tried (and of course all sorts of it):

- Start FCP X
- Connect my Sony HDR-SR12 with USB
- Turn the camcorder on and choose USB CONNECT
- Press the "Import media from a connected device" icon in FCPX
- "NO NAME" is showing up, with a circle... waiting...
- After a minute, "NO NAME" disappears

Any ideas? Thanks

Like almost all Sony HDR camcorder users, you may be confused on how to edit Sony HDR-SR12 video with Final Cut Pro on Mac OS X as above. Final Cut Pro isn't compatible with Sony HDR-SR12 AVCHD video, so before solving this problem, you have to convert Sony HDR-SR12 AVCHD to FCP acceptable file format like MOV video format encoded with ProRes or H.264 codec on Mac OS X for natively importing SR12 mts files to FCP.

Sony MTS to FCP Converter is a top assisting app for AVCHD to Mac processing. It re-wraps the Sony AVCHD .mts/.m2ts media into a .mov format so that FCP can read the mts files. Because no actual encoding takes place, the conversion takes in a few seconds. For users that wanna skip rendering process in FCP, it is also possible to export Apple ProRes encoded .mov.

The easy way to import and edit Sony SR12 AVCHD in Final Cut Pro

Step 1: Download Pavtube AVCHD to Final Cut Pro Converter and import your Sony SR12 AVCHD file. This software will solve your AVCHD to Final Cut Pro importing problems.



Step 2: You will need to choose the output format for FCP. You are recommended to choose Final Cut Pro -> Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov), it’s great for editing in FCP.

There are other four presets for ProRes: Apple ProRes 422 HQ, Apple ProRes 422 LT, Apple ProRes 422 Proxy and Apple ProRes 4444. Usually the ProRes 422 HQ has better video quality than ProRes 422 and could meet your needs.

Learn more Apple ProRes, please refer to Types of Apple ProRes Codecs




Step 3: Click “Settings” button to adjust the output video’s parameters, such as bitrate, resolution, etc. for example, you can choose the resolution as 1920*1080 or 1280*720, that’s 1080p or 720p resolution, great for editing.



Step 4: Start converting Sony SR12 AVCHD to Final Cut Pro with Prores Codec.

After converting, you can load Sony SR12 AVCHD video to Final Cut Pro for editing as you want, now you can have a try.
