“Hi, all, I have the Humax Fox and have just copied a file of a HD program to my iMac. The program is the MPEG2 transport stream file (.TS) at 1GB. The .TS plays fine in VLC player but my iMovie cannot recognize the file as a valid format. I suspect that I should convert the TS to something that the iMovie will open. Can anyone recommend a Mac converter to help me out?”
