“I’m loading some transport stream files (.ts) into Vegas Pro 16. All files were captured from the same device which captures from a satelliete. Some videos import fine, while others may either not import at all or import with only half of the audio. Is there anything I might be missing in regards to these types of clips?”
Normally, we can get TS files from HD camcorders such as JVC, Panasonic, Sony and cannon. But TS video cannot be played on many media players and portable devices because of incompatibility. When you tried to load the TS files int Vegas Pro (Vegas Pro 17 Included) for some editing, you will encounter problems mentioned above. Is there any possible ways to resolve the problem? After searching, I’ve found three possible solutions:
As some guys suggest, .TS files are technically just MPEG2 files at a very specific resolution. We can try to rename the file extension from .ts to .mpg to allow Vegas Pro to see the footage.
I’ve tried the way. It in fact let me import the TS files to Vegas Pro, but there is no audio track. I’ve reset some settings, no luck.
Use a relatively newer computer. Processing TS file needs a newer and faster computer processor and the old computer can not provide that. So we can launch Vegas Pro 17 on a newer computer with the fast processor.
A more practical way recommended online is to convert TS to a common format/container for using in Vegas Pro. And H.264 MOV and MPEG-2 MPG is the optimal format.

By running it, there’s no need to set the codec yourself: the program has optimized presets for Vegas Pro 17, 16, 15, etc. With it, you can do batch conversion from TS to Vegas Pro compatible video formats without quality loss.
