Instruction: How to convert Video_TS to MKV for playback easily
Step 1. Add Video_TS folder
Start the Video_TS to MKV converter. Click “Load DVD” to select and load the Video_TS files you want to convert. All the loaded files will be displayed on the left source pane and you can choose the titles to rip. Plus, DVD ISO/IFO files are also supported well.
Step 2. Choose output format
Click the Format bar and go to the Profile column, choose MKV as the output video format in the category of “Common Video”. Of course, MP4, AVI, WMV, MOV, MPG, etc formats are all provided for you.
Tip- Video/Audio settings
If you like, you can click “Settings” to change the video encoder, resolution, frame rate, etc. as you wish. According to my experience, the file size and video quality is based more on bitrate than resolution which means bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.
Step 3. Start DVD VIDEO_TS to MKV Conversion
At last, click the “Convert” button on the main interface to begin encoding Video_TS files to MKV videos. When the conversion completes, you can tap “Open” to locate the converted MKV files. After that, you can play and share them on HD TV, Plex or other portable devices anytime you like.
