My friend gave me two 500GB hard drives 1000GB full of HD movies,clips, shows(TS files) . i'm trying to burn them to a DVD disk so i can watch them on the big screen. I don't understand one thing do i always have to convert ts file to the mpeg? because i can not find any programs that will burn TS files to a DVD disk. i wanna try to burn a few clips to the dvd disk with original size and the quality(1080i clips a few clips they're 500mb each TS file) Because when i convert them to mpeg the files got smaller like 177mb where the hell is the quality? how to get that TS file into a format that can be burned onto a dvd without loosing too much quality?
