WMP on W8 cannot play video with ts extension

Windows Media Player on W8 cannot play video file with .ts file extension. There is no such problem with WMP on W7. How can I play it without converting the file format?

The actual problem that you are referring to is that Windows 8 does not ship with an MPEG 2 decoder.

Thank you very much for your help. The problem has been resolved by installing the WMC add-on.
