Can Winamp play .TS files?

Hi,
I've searched and haven't been able to find much about this...is Winamp able to play .TS files? At the moment I can play them in WMP but in Winamp, I only get the audio
Thanks

I'm not sure how well Winamp handles MPEG-2 Transport Stream videos
(I don't have any sample files)
but have you tried adding TS to the Extension List in the DirectShow Decoder config?
(Winamp -> Prefs -> Plugins -> Input -> in_dshow -> config)

This worked for me when playing .TS files.

Sorry to bring up the dead. but google brought me to this thread.

I add ts to in_dshow, and it starts to play but just makes a buzzing noise and the vid freezes. sometimes it locks up winamp. I also tried other directions found here like using the 7tweaker tool to set ffd as mpeg2 default for 32bit codec. nothing changed.

when i play the file in VLC and check what codec it is using it says "H.264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part10) (h264) for video. WMP can also play it, but i prefer winamp. I also have CCCP installed.

any ideas?

Hi akep,

Well it's no secret that even the latest version of Winamp has better native (out-of-the-box) support for audio formats. The discontinued Pro version has good, but not perfect, support for H.264 video.

Assuming your CCCP codec package has the appropriate decoders and is setup to provide them thru the DirectShow mechanism, there is a small chance that changing the file's extension from ".ts" to ".mpeg" will allow Winamp to play the file correctly.

Otherwise you would need to convert the ".ts" package format, and maybe the video and audio streams in the package, into something that your version of Winamp provides native support for. Converting the video and audio streams includes the risk of degrading their quality. Look at answer 9 in the article linked below.

well, changing the extension didn't work.

any suggestions for a windows based video converter?

I'm about to check that answer you posted.

Edit: looks like these are answers for a linux based system, I should have mentioned I'm running Win 7. Also, thanks for the help.

Thanks for the brilliant advice. I, too, simply added .TS to the direct show decoder, and now all my MPEG-TS audio files play perfectly.
