What is a TS file?
A TS file is a video stream file used to store video on a DVD. It compresses video data using standard MEPG-2 (.MPEG) video compression. The TS file format is used primarily to save streamed or broadcast video.
TS files are often saved as multiple files on a DVD, such as moviename1.ts, moviename2.ts, moviename3.ts, and so on. You can open and play TS files using various media players and video editing software, including the programs we list below.
NOTE: If necessary, you can attempt to rename a TS file to use the MPEG extension and open it as an MPEG movie.
How do I open a TS file?
You can open TS files using VideoLAN VLC media player, a free-to-download media player. To open a TS file in VLC media player:
- Select .
- Navigate to the folder containing the TS file.

Language translation file created by the lupdate utility, which is included with Digia's Qt SDK; contains phrases and their translations into another language; used for storing translations specific to a particular application.
TS files can be converted to .QPH files using the lconvert utility, which is included with the Qt SDK. Unlike TS files, QPH can be used for multiple applications. Both TS and QPH files are stored in an XML format.
NOTE: Qt SDK was previously developed by Nokia before Digia acquired the software.
