    Re: Play *.ts video file type

    Where did the file come from?

    Have you got all codecs installed that are available?

    I can play some, but not all .ts files on my old machine with a single core sempron 2400+ cpu; fully HD files seem to be the problem, simply because my machine is not powerful enough.

    I can use VLC, which is my main choice for videos, but mplayer works, as do gnome-mplayer, smplayer, and probably others, but not totem or banshee for some reason.

    The .ts suffix does not tell you what the file really as it is just a "container" for media files. Try running mediainfo for all details of the files included. As an example, here's the detailed output of one of my .ts files, recorded onto usb on my digital TV from a broadcast by the BBC.

    Now I had download M player. I can hear its sound but has no display. It's streaming like an audio file.
