    Hi chaps, i promise this is the last question today !.

    I have an Apple MacBookPro for which i purchased some excellent software for converting .TS files to DVD Video, today it started OK but then it decided to NOT work properly, dam.
    I was then able to Boot into Windows 7 and i found some free software called Freemake Video Convertor which did the job perfectly for just one .TS file and then it started crashing everytime i tried to convert any more files, dam.
    Of course i might have some computer trouble, i hope not, it works ok at all other times.
    So can i please ask, what Software do you chaps use to convert .TS files to DVD Video ?.
    preferably free and proven to to be easy to use, most important LOL.

    Thanks, Tim

    For Standard Definition TS files it is already in MPEG2 format, so if you rename it e.g. name.ts to name.mpg any DVD authoring software will take in the mpg and build the VOB structure used in a DVD. Nero Vision express will take in the mpg files and produce a DVD, this is usually bundled free with computers / DVD writers

    TmpgEnc Authoring Works. Costs $99 but does excellent job.

    I use it to create NTSC format DVDs for my brother in US.

    Amazing how Sony TVs and DVDs in Europe hand PAL and NTSC but the "same" model I'm US only handles NTSC!!!

    Do people still make DVDs, then? I just stick stuff on a NAS, after using VideoReDo to clip it to an MPG file without adverts.
