Importing .ts files to VideoWave or EMC9


Lefteris

Question

Hi there, I'm not too experienced with handling video files, but a couple of months ago I bought a Humax PVR and to archive recorded films etc, I transfer their video files (type .ts) to my PC, an AMD Athlon 2600+ with 2 gig RAM and a Crucial Radeon 1600 Video Card.

I then found a compatibilty problem with either editing the files or trying to create DVD ROM readable video files. For use on a computer Cyberlinks PowerDVD or DivX play them fine, but I can't put them off to Disk as videos files. So I found Roxio which I have used in the past for Audio CD Burning and was well impressed

The blurb said you could import .ts files, so I coughed up and bought EMC9

Unfortunately, although the list of media types for import includes .ts, everytime I try, the software hangs and I get the Microsoft window saying Non-reponsive program.

Is this a known problem since I note very little software out there even tries to import .ts files, or is there something else I can do

Thanks in advance anyone who can solve my problem

Is the system really locked or just looked like it? When adding TS files, the proxyfilemanager will be hard at work taking up lots of resources. It could slow your computer to a crawl.

 

Hi Gary - It does lock up and if Task Manager will launch (it doesn't always) Roxio has the Not Responding marker, and sometimes won't die from there either and I have to do a cold reboot

 

I have left it for a couple of hours to see if it just gets round to it in the end, and no it doesn't

 

I have just run as previously suggested Ad-aware and it's kicked out 32 tracking cookies, and I will try a defrag too, though the disks in question are both fairly new, and give Roxio another go

 

Thanks

List your computer specs, similar to how I have mine listed in my signature

I just had this PC rebuilt because the pwr supply blew and took the motherboard with it - got it back last Monday 5th Feb and immediately did an MS Windows update but I guess DirectX 9 is not included in the general update cos when I review the history it's not listed

 

Anyway, I've just grabbed the latest Feb Update and run VideoWave - it imported a 1Gb .ts file after saying it needed to convert it, which it duly did and within a few minutes, so I guess the prob is fixed - thanks very much

 

Previously it would have frozen up at the conversion point - now I'll get brave and try a 2.5Gb file !

 

Thanks again

Spoke too soon ! Tried a file just slightly under 1 gig and when Roxio tried to convert it, the whole system froze up again - tried several times and same thing every time

 

Do I need a significantly better spec'd computer despite the System Requirements suggested in Roxio ?

 

Thanks

The spec looks fine to me so that isn't likely to be the cause of the problem.

 

Have you run adaware se and/or spybot s&d to check for malware? I use both here and check regularly (they're both free downloads). Also, did you defrag the drive before starting the render process? It may seem strange but fragmented files can cause severe hiccups as the heads skip all over the place collecting the data.

 

Another thing that can cause problems is other apps running during the render (the render is extremely CPU intensive). Things like instant messengers, surfing, e-mails have been known to cause problems (which is why I suggested the malware scan)
