They are supposed to work fine with FFmpeg and friends, 
including MPlayer.

"no result" is unfortunately not a helpful bug description.

Command line and complete, uncut console output missing 
if you need help here.

Transport streams have no magic number because they have 
no beginning, file is useful to detect if a file is not 
a multimedia file (but something else), if you know that 
your file is a multimedia file, we recommend "ffmpeg -i 
file" to detect what it is.
