A TS file is a Video Transport Stream file used to store MPEG-2 compressed video data. TS files are often seen on DVDs. When you rip a movie from DVD, you may get a video file with a .ts extension. And we all know that DVD movies are always large, so the TS video would take up a lot of storage space. Is there any way to compress TS files while not affecting video quality? The answer is absolutely YES! Read on to get more details.
To compress .ts files with satisfying output quality, a good video compressor is essential. WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro is one of the best solutions for video compression tasks. It mainly offers two ways to downsize TS files. One is to set a specific compression ratio, and the other is to change the video codec, lower resolution, decrease bitrate, frame rate, etc. All methods would cause little quality loss during the compression process. What's more, the software also lets you download TS videos from websites and then edit videos without any effort.
Launch the TS compressor software and open the Converter. Click Add Files to load the original TS video files into the program. Or you can directly drag and drop them therein.
Hit the format image on the right of the interface. Choose a video format under the Video tab. You can convert TS to MP4, MOV, AVI, and other formats that have a higher compression rate than TS.
