QuickStream Fix fails on .ts files reporting incorrect length


New member
I have a number of television recordings made with WinTV7 via an Hauppauge capture box that saves as .ts files. They're all 2-hour files and all just shy of 8Gb. Some of the files will still be shy of 8Gb, but will report an incorrect length. Might be 1:20:00 or it could report 20 hours. File is still 8Gb and IF VideoRedo will open it, the entire show appears to be there. Just can't edit it without getting an error that suggests using Quickstream Fix.. which ultimately fails. I also cannot save the opened file without getting an error. Files reporting the expected time length (1:59:00 ish) edit and save with no issues.

Suggestions welcome.

What version are you running (Help>About)?

Try trimming off the first few hundred MB and/or the last few hundred MB using Tools>Trim. You might need to increase this up to a GB on either end.

Also, don't delete the original file, as I would be interested in seeing it, but by using Tools>Trim hopefully we can isolate the problem to the start or end.
