2.2.24 (See all)

TS-Doctor is intended to solve some of the problems that may arise when you capture transport streams and intend to play them on standard media players. Likewise, it can help you get rid of unwanted parts like commercials and junk data. The program can process streams received via satellite, cable and DVB, in practically any of the standard formats (TS, MTS, M2TS, DVR, TS4, TRP, REC, STR). In addition, it can be helpful in solving similar problems found in footage taken with some types of camcorders.

The tool has a modern interface that guides you through the process of selecting the source files, scanning and fixing errors as well as converting them to other readily playable formats. Besides, it has a video editor, which allows cutting undesirable parts. In this respect, it is great that it makes an attempt to automatically detect commercials, though not always successfully.

In addition to repairing errors, the program can extract program guide information and save it as metadata with the new files. Likewise, the tool is very effective in converting DVB subtitles to the SRT format, which is compatible with a wider range of players. Finally, it lets you perform other more complex operations, such as merging, filtering, demuxing and remuxing streams. Luckily, it supports multiple video formats (DVR, MKV, AVCHD, BD and MP4) as output.

All in all, TS-Doctor solves lots of problems related to quality and compatibility when recording video from various sources and in different formats. Fortunately, the program does its job without causing any loss to the original quality of the footage. It is definitely one of those products that deserve a try, so it is good to know that it may be used at no cost with no feature limitation for a 30-day period.
