    I have a video .ts file that i'd like to burn to dvd so that I can play it on my dvd player. However, Roxio Toast doesn't support this file format (unless it's a ts file folder, which I don't have). I was wondering what program can burn it on a dvd disc, or do I even need one? Can I just burn it under the data tab in roxio toast and will it play on my dvd player that way?
    Thanks for the help!

    Try using MPEG Streamclip to save the ts as an mpg first (don't worry, it won't alter the audio/video, just the container format) and then try Toast on the mpg file. I assume you have the latest version of Toast?

    If you burn it as data, no it won't play on a DVD player.

    double to single layer VIDEO TS ?

    Hi folks. I need a bit of help * & would appreciate any feedback *

    I actually have the video ts files of a double layer DVD film.
    ... at least I assume it's double layer, as it's about 7 gig. It contains 7 video ts files that seem to consist of the actual film, the others are just menu etc.

    I want to burn some of the ts files (the first 3) on one single layer disk, and then the other files (last 4) on another disk.

    The trouble is, when I drag the 3 ts files that contain the first part of the film, into Toast 10 Titanium, it displays just one file, that looks like the whole film (too big).

    Does anyone know... how can I burn the earlier part of the film only please?

    I have MPEG Streamclip, but I would rather just burn the video ts files straight, so it doesn't have to encode a gigantic avi file etc.

    Thanks for reading

    It's been a while since I have done this, but if your TS folder contains VOB files, D-Vision can be used to merge the ones you want into two large project files, which Toast can then process into DVDs.

    Thanks Dave, I will check it out.

    ... just lost inspiration to sort out the film I was focusing on... I've discovered while playing in VLC that the last few video ts files are in dubbed spanish, while the rest is in non-dubbed english. rubbish! :confused:

    oh well :)

    I use a DVD creator to convert my .ts files to dvd, just fine. A little quicker than some other software. Some similar software just cost a lot of time in coverting which I cannot bear. There is a guide tip which I find in the article area of the software. Very easy to operate, it cost me just 5 minutes to learn how to use it.

    When I use Toast Titanium, I just select the whole DVD TS folder, insert a single layer DVD, and click the burn symbol. toast compresses the DVD to the appropriate size and burns it automatically for me. Not sure you've taken it that far from your post.
