All features

Working with transport streams can be very difficult. Many standard video editors fail to process this kind of files correctly. You can get asynchronous audio and video, the playback stops, judders or the playback is not possible at all. This is where TS-Doctor comes to rescue.
TS-Doctor can do this better, faster and without loss of quality.

Transport stream analysis
Smart Data Analysis
On opening a TV recording, the TS-Doctor starts a quick deep transport stream analysis to get as much information as possible about the structure, the included streams and the meta data.
This way nearly any transport stream format current recording devices uses, can be read, be it TS, MTS, M2TS, DVR, TS4, TRP, REC, STR or another related format.
It tries to identify the source and the exact format of the recording, a program guide and the best methods to fix problems and detect commercial breaks. Most set top boxes record much more than only one video and one audio stream.

Commercial detection
TS-Doctor makes use of this additional information and helps you to remove annoying commercial breaks and garbage data, fix stream problems and brings the recording into shape for your video library and better compatibility with today's media players.
Program guide

Meta Data
It extracts program guide information if possible and saves it along with the new cut file, so you know exactly what movie or episode you recorded.
Complete details for your video library.

Video Editing
TS-Doctor includes an easy-to-use video editor window to check or improve the result of the automatic cutting or allow for manually cutting. The simple, fast and lossless cutting of the TS-Doctor can be used even for recordings of camcorders, if the recorder format is TS, MTS or M2TS. This is the case for example for many models from Sony, Canon and Panasonic.
DVB Subtitel Converting

DVB Subtitel Converting
Conversion of DVB subtitles into the more widely-used SRT text format. This makes TS Doctor one of the few programs that can convert DVB subtitles, including the colour information, into a text format.
Error check result

Error Checking
The result page gives you a detailed overview about the amount of removed data and errors found during the processing. Even the streams are inspected in deep, TS-Doctor is lightning fast.
Extended error checking guarantees perfect results.

Useful Expert Tools
TS-Doctor includes many useful tools to work with transport streams. With these tools you can merge, filter, demux, remux streams or even use the TS Packet Viewer to inspect transport streams on packet level.
TS-Doctor is the swiss army knife for transport streams.

I'm trying to convert some TS files (to get subtitles to work on another device) to MKV
but I am finding many especially HD ones truncate - sometimes after a few megabytes
Nothing seems to stop this - I've tried everything from raw ffmpeg to MKVToolnix etc

I saw TS doctor and hoped it would identify the issue but nothing it seems
to do in the Free version stops it.

I'd be happy to buy this given the other features if only it could stop this truncation
(preferably keeping subtitles intact)

Perhaps the authour could think of a reason for the truncating - I can't find it.

I like the software and have been using it for almost 10 years. There is hardly any software that is updated so often and gets new features. Works from Windows XP to Windows 11 and even on Linux and MacOS using Wine/Crossover/PlayOnMac. The license file you get when you buy it can be used on multiple PCs and doesn't need to be authorized over the Internet, as is often necessary with other software. Use the software to clean recordings from Austrian, Swiss and German channels and remove annoying commercials.

Review by AustrianUser on Jul 5, 2021 Version: 3.1.13 OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

Disappointing. I downloaded the trial version to see if it could help with some .ts file recordings made via IPTV. It was far from intuitive. On one file it was able to 'clean' the file and save a 'fixed' version of it, but on two others it found errors and just gave up. The Commercial Detection was useless, and cut the file in incorrect places. I will not be buying the full version!

Is easy to use and gives good results. Fast and reliable. Works with many receiver formats.
I can recommend this tool.

This software does an outstanding job fixing problems in transport streams.
The only issue I have is the CLI is very limited in functionality. You cannot fully automate a task without a dialog box popping up after a repair.
