TS to MPEG-4: How to convert TS files from PVR to MP4 video

A digital video recorder (DVR), sometimes referred to by the merchandising term personal video recorder (PVR), is a consumer electronics device that records video in a digital format to a disk drive, USB flash drive, SD memory card or other local or networked mass storage device. I’ve used the app for years. For these days, I’m considering converting TS files from PVR to MPEG-4 video for playback on my iPad, but no idea. Searched online, I got some workable tricks. Now I will share the best way to convert TS to MPEG-4 video with least quality loss.

As we know, DVRs(PVRs) can usually record and play H.264, MPEG-4 Part 2, MPEG-2 .mpg, MPEG-2 .TS, VOB and ISO images video, with MP3 and AC3 audio tracks. Since I got the resulting TS files from PVR, what I need is a professional TS video converter to finish the conversion task.

I tried Handbrake initially, but frustratingly, the freeware can’t support encoding TS files as I need. Luckily, I found that Brorsoft  Video Converter (Windows 8 supported) takes the hassle out of converting TS files among devices, players and applications, making it as easy as the click of a button.
