just downloaded, I guess for the first time a .ts file which I am unable to play via latest 1.1.8 VLC player, which I read is supposed to handle it. First of all the .ts was not recognised (openSUSE 11.4 KDE 4.6.1 x86_64 all) as any associated file with program, so I used open with -> VLC. It opens the file and sticks to 1st frame and nothing happens.
opensuse-community codec packs are all installed. As I said above, I was able to play it via mplayer (smplayer gui), so all good, but VLC is not playing it. As per Kaffeine, it plays only audio track, not even the first frame of video.
