“I got a .ts file and have heard VLC can play this file type. However, I have no luck, can someone tell me how please?” Have you ever asked the same question, but haven’t figured out how to play the TS files with your VLC player? Actually, TS is a container and not a format, like Matroska (MKV), you can put almost anything in a TS container. If the codec used to encode the TS files is not supported well by your VLC player, you are of course unable to play it successfully. Thus just don't expect any player to play TS files.
