WMP on W8 cannot play video with ts extension

Tue Apr 16, 2013 9:27 am

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.
