How to convert TS to AVI?


TS stands for Transport Stream. This format is often used to transmit audio / video streams in digital television, and many videos captured from digital TV networks have the .ts extension. TS files can also be found on DVD Video discs.

AVI (Audio Video Interleave) is one of the oldest and most popular video formats, initially created by Microsoft as part of their Video for Windows framework. Most software and hardware players, including portable ones, support AVI videos.
