    the GTS file extension is a recording from a dvr on the captiveworks 800s a free to air unit. I am trying to convert it so it can be viewed on a pc.

    John --- If all your after is to view a .gts on your PC and your using Winblows then you need to just install the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack!!! This codec pack is nice to have anyway for all kinds of video related stuff. Check it out.
    2008-01-14 08:59:43
    that codec pack does not have a codec for the .gts files
    2008-01-14 20:08:21
    Well...sorry about that...I thought it would be in that one. I just installed Some K-Lite stuff to view my .gts. I'm not logged into my windows computer so I'm not for sure this is correct but you might do a search for klmcodec149...I'm pretty sure that's the one that'll work. I know one of the K-Lite packs will work you might have to try a few. This is the main site for K-Lite . You may or may not find something on it.

    CaptiveWorks 800 records to USB flash or external USB harddrives using mpeg2. Try renaming the .gts file extension to .mpeg. Its just as simple as that!

    2008-01-23 06:58:50
    what does work is ConvertXtoDVD 3.0 beta it loaded the file transcoded and burned to DVD

    I used total video converter and converted to mpg. video quality is really good but audio was off sync by around a second. i tried converting it by just changing the file extention but it failed(gts to mpeg).
    2008-02-03 09:21:13
    Thanks for the heads up on Total Video Converter I'll check it out...

    I tried the rename sort of is definitely of the mpeg family....but just doing that isn't going to get me what I'm after....when I just change the extension and then try to edit the video it will import into the program and will encode but with serious stuttering and A/V out of sync.

    Regarding the convert from *.GTX to *.??? you might try VideoReDo @ . Seems to work great and fast.

    Hi all,

    Have any of you tried downloading the klite codec pack and then using VLC to open it?

    Klite Codec pack

    Would really appreciate someone trying this as it's hard to help when I don't have a .gts file :/
    2008-04-28 16:51:08
    CW 800PVR files are recorded in GTS format. Rename the file to mpeg, then use windows media player clasic to view the video.
    2008-04-30 13:09:03
    I recored from satellite captivework800 and also download to my pc( k-lite mega codec) but did not work, someone can help me

    thanks Ali

    rename the archive namex.gts to namex.mpg, or namex.mpeg or namex.avi, work in every computer.
    2008-05-23 11:53:49
    download KMPlayer and you're all set, do not have to change extention .gts, just open file.
    2008-06-03 07:27:03
    I have downloaded the KMPlayer, it works fine; What I am looking for is a program to edit the .gts file or convert .gts to .mpeg ?
    2008-07-21 12:09:52
    It is made by CaptiveWorks, specifically for converting the .gts files to .mpg
    How to use it;
    in the Open box, browse to the .gts file you want to convert.
    in the Save box, browse to the location where you want to save the .mpg file
    in the File name box put in the name the file to be called (example; converted.mpg) ignore the fact that it shows you can only save as *.ts and *.gts.
    then click OK. it will seem like it is doing nothing, but it is converting the file. It will pop up a message box stating that the file has been converted.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi, I used visual hub works perfectly but the audio its not sync
    BTW: VH its only for mac ;)
    2008-09-02 11:10:54
    For viewing gts files use the K-lite media player. when viewing you'll get an error message but hit ok than later it will play it. And use ConvertXtoDVD to convert the file to dvd.
    2008-09-08 01:28:52
    I'm using VisualHub to convert the .GTS files to DVD format, everything is Ok. but i cannot make the output to keep the captioning. Any ideas?
    2008-09-24 21:37:47
    I have used the VideoRedo. it is fast and perfect. You can cut the unwanted portion of the video and more.
    Download from , search for VideoRedo and download. Good luck

    I downloaded the K-Lite codec pack from and then Windows Media Player Classic from and I managed to play it without even changing the extension , only thing is i'm not sure if the codec pack actually did anything , so the best thing you can do is to get the windows media player classic first and if it couldn't play it , get the codec too , but somehow I think that codec didn't really do anything .

    Two previous posts have suggested changing the video file extension from *.gts to *.mpg.

    I tried it. IT WORKS!!!

    "Two previous posts have suggested changing the video file extension from *.gts to *.mpg.

    In works in what media player? I have VLC videolan , WMP 11 , Quicktime , Realplayer (All their latest versions of course) and none played it with that trick , Only Windows Media player Classic played it and that didn't need a file extension change !
    2008-10-20 21:03:03
    gom player does the job and it's FREE
    2008-11-18 20:01:50
    Just get a GOM player it's free and it works great on gts files
    2008-12-16 10:28:54
    Why the hell is everyone here giving bad advice. If you don't know, don't say anything. One guy says install k-lite whoops that's wrong. Another says videoredo whoops thats wrong. Another one says rename the file to mpeg, whoops thats wrong. We're asking some1 who knows, not some 1 with a hunch (geez).
    2008-12-22 01:14:16
    Hey Everybody

    I also tried the GOM player and it works. Just Download it and play your files. Thanks Norm.
    2008-12-27 18:36:59
    I tried Kmp player using two different computer, one works very well, but another one cannot. Then I tried GOM, it works pretty good.
    2009-01-03 08:46:58
    winavi converts them. gts files play just fine with windows media viewer without doing anything

    2009-01-07 16:38:45

    I download 11 movies with CW800 and now I cant see them in my PC. Please something I can do to fix it?
    2009-01-28 09:58:19
    Hey Mr. wtf,

    Suck on this:

    I just reinstalled windblows and paid very close attention to what I installed to view the .gts file.

    IT'S THE:
    K-Lite Mega Codec Pack version
    File Size: 32.1mb
    When I installed I selected Profile 5 'Lots of Stuff'

    plays it absolutely great can jump ahead jump back whatever it just keeps playing it great.

    So bite me Mr. wtf: I said it might be a different pack and it was!!!



    I have tried all kinds of different media player classics by themselves to no avail. So now I found out for sure that I have to have the 1.4.9 Codec Pack.

    For those that don't know Media Player Classic gets installed with the K-Lite Packs.

    I tried different packs....uninstalling and reinstalling all sorts of stuff....while trying to play the .gts file in between installs and reinstalls to see what would work.

    Pack 4.xxxx would bring a failure to play window up but would still play it.


    If you're after a .gts file editor I highly recommend VideoRedo!!! Extremely easy and works very well and

    outputs to a far more compatible mpeg format.

    Now if you can't get it from there.....then SORRY FOR YA!!!!!!!
    2009-03-02 13:14:13
    Hi, I was able to play and view the .gts file with this movie player - it's called Gomplayer that can be downloaded for free on the net - and you don't even have to convert the file. - good luck, bye

    2009-03-02 14:58:13
    Thanks all, I've added GOM Player to the main information on this extension.

    I am seeking advice on how to change an AVI file to a GTS file. I have a few movies in AVI format but would like to watch them on the big screen using my receiver. Does anyone know of a program that will convert AVI to GTS?
    2009-04-12 09:54:51
    The GTS is another form of mpg. Your box should play all mpg files also. So just convert avi to mpg and you should be fine
