The TS file format is mainly used to store MPEG-2 video streams, and these files are frequently seen on DVDs. You may also have some .ts videos when downloading online, as some broadcast applications adopt the TS file format to transmit media files over the internet. Moreover, some digital cameras also use TS as the output format of recorded videos.
If your TS files are too large or too long, you can cut them for smaller sizes or shorter clips. So the following will show you some simple and free TS cutters to help with your work.
WonderFox Free HD Video Converter Factory is a perfect free TS video editing program for entry-level users to start editing. Its self-explanatory interface and intuitive workflow can help you cut TS videos most easily. Meanwhile, it can also act as a free video splitter to cut long TS videos into smaller segments. The whole video-cutting process only takes a few simple clicks. Furthermore, it also supports editing other video files and can output them to more than 500 presets. During video cutting, users can even compress the video size without losing quality. All the features are easy to get started with.
Without further ado, download it and follow the simple guide below to start cutting!
Step 1. Import TS Files
Launch Free HD Video Converter Factory after you install it on your PC. Enter the “Converter” module from its initial interface and then press the “+ Add Files” button in the upper right corner or the center “+” button to load TS videos. You can also directly drag and drop the source files into the workspace.
Step 2. Cut TS Files
Click the scissors icon below the video to enter the cutting window.
Drag the two sliders on the timeline to select the time section you want to save. You can also type in the exact “Start & End” times to create a more accurate segment. Then press the green “Trim” button to produce a video clip. In the video cutting window, you can also repeat the process to create more clips from one video. Finally, hit “OK” to save the change and go back.
Step 3. Export the Final Files
Click the profile image on the right side of the interface to select an output format under the “Video” tab. You can then modify video resolution, codec, etc. in the “Parameter settings” window.
