    Mpeg.ts format compatibility with Premiere Elements

    Nepomucene

      I am currently trying to access Mpeg.ts formats with Premiere_Elements 9 operated under W7.

      It seems that it is rather impossible to do that in a simple way.

       

      Has anybody already experienced such an issue ? (and preferably solved it).

       

      Looking forward for your help.

          .ts is originally designed for broadcasting (e.g. Internet TV). It was enhanced for camcorders by adding a timecode to the data stream.

           

          Does your .ts file come from a camera or from a captured stream or digital video recording?

          Can you analyse the file with GSpot or MediaInfo and post a screenshot here.

           

          Cheers,

            The answer is that Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1 Windows does not support MPEG2.ts. Premiere Elements 10, 11, and 12 do.

             

            I have confirmed this by actually working with MPEG2.ts in the programs mentioned.

             

            If you are restricted to the use of Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1, you might want to consider converting them to another format with a program

            such as MPEG Streamclip which does do batch exports if batch exporting is an included requirement for your work.

              Thanks for this clarification. After some more testing, I am now considering upgrading my configuration to solve this problem and probably additionnal ones as side effects.

               

              Thanks for your help.

                Thanks for the update.

                 

                If you do consider Premiere Elements 12, good to look at the tryout first to assure it compatibility with your computer operating system as well as to assure it meets your video editing needs in all ways.

                 

                Best wishes
