If you type the following:
$ ffmpeg -i input.ts
FFmpeg is supposed to auto-detect that this is a transport stream.
You can also try:
$ mv input.ts test
$ ffmpeg -i test
and auto-detection should still work (it does see the extension
but should normally not need it).

Please do not top-post on this mailing list, Carl Eugen
