More information and other downloads:
MPEG2Repair is NOT a virus. Some goofy antivirus products detect it as one because it uses code packing in order to both reduce the file size and obfuscate the code.

The author is on record as to why he chose to pack the file:
"The exe was packed because I didn't want users to easily remove the expiration date on the beta versions and to make the file smaller. Everyone is entitled to release their software however they like. I didn't want buggy versions to live forever on the net so I made sure they would expire. If you don't like it, don't use it. It's freeware."

You may wonder "What expiration date? This version does not expire!"...the author simply didn't have time to continue developing the tool and decided to remove the expiration date from this final version (I believe the code was not open-sourced b/c he intended to use some of it in a commercial, closed-source venture).

This tool did not fix my edited HD Transport Stream(.ts). It does not correct the time duration of the files, if the .ts has been edited. For instance, if you cut out commericals from a two hours show, and then run it through mpeg2repair, the time still says two hours length. Another software, VideoReDo's Quickstream fix was able to correct the length properly.

Very rarely (actually never) do I give a tool a 10. This very small simple tool is a must for those who record over-the-air HDTV streams. They always have errors, some very minor and some much moreso.

It is essential for those who record and then wish to:
1) Archive
2) Convert
Both will require your *.ts and *.tp streams have errors removed and MPEG2Repair does just that. I ran into some cases where my HDTV (OTA) capture would not open in editing programs (Womble MPEG Video Wizard or VideoRedo). After running the stream through MPEG2Repair, I was then able to open in editing program, cut commercials and then save 4GB chunks to DVD-R (archiving) or save new file for conversion to DVD/WMV/XviD/DivX.

Highly recommended.
