Option to repair TS (Transport Streams) Files

Reported by: mattsch@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: unknown
Severity: medium Keywords: mpeg2repair mpeg2 ts transport stream repair
Cc: Ticket locked: no


One feature that is sorely missing in mythtv is the option to repair mpeg2 transport streams to make them standards compliant (like fixing the timecode) after they've been captured. This is not transcoding but just fixing the errors that occurred during transmission. This is especially a problem for embedded consumer electronic devices that play TS files because they have little or no tolerance for errors in the TS file. There seem to be several utilities that do this for Windows (like mpeg2repair) but I have not found any on Linux that perform this task.

the above script was written by be as a replacement for mythtranscode, to process a mythtv recording includung the cutlist with projectX. It has a minor bug: there have to be at least 2 cutpoints in the cutlist. Maybe this helps.

Thanks! I'll have to try out this script.
