MPEG-2 TS files Failed to import to Premiere CS5/CS6 - How to Solve TS and Adobe PP problem

Step-by-step tutorial to import and edit your TS files in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5/CS6 by converting TS to Premiere native format.

Transport Stream .TS file is a container format that stores video on a DVD and compresses video data using standard MPEG-2 video compression. Its design goal is to allow multiplexing of digital video and audio and to synchronize the output. TS files are often saved as multiple files on a DVD, i.e. "moviename1.ts," "moviename2.ts," "moviename3.ts," etc.

"I used a Hauppauge HVR and it generated a bunch of giant video files.

I tried to open them in premiere pro cs5 and it won't recognize them. The extension hauppauge uses is ".ts" (transport stream) which is an mpeg-2 encoded TS. I've research almost everywhere but not succeed to find my answer, so though might worth posting my question on this forum as well, hopefully somebody could help!"
