How do I download a TS File from Twitter and Import it onto Vegas Pro?

How do I easily download a TS file from Twitter and import it onto Vegas Pro (w/o quality loss)? I tried using Video Downloader Extensions from Google Chrome and that doesn't work.

I tried converting a TS file via VLC and that doesn't work.

I also tried using a video convertor online but when I import the file it only imports the audio but not the video.

For downloading, try 4k Video Downloader.

TS files should open in Vegas if they don't have too many errors.

Post your properties.

Just tried using 4K Video Downloader. It says it doesn't support the site. Is there a specific URL I'm supposed to copy from a video on twitter in order to paste the link correctly?

idk -- I'm not on Twitter. Do let us know when you find a solution, though.

I tried a TS file from Twitter just then, Vegas crashes when file is added.(VP18)

@Javary I use Shutter Encoder to rewrap to MP4, video quality is not altered. Vegas will load the MP4 fine.

There are various websites and chrome extensions that allow twitter videos to be downloaded.

Can you post the MediaInfo for a TS (Transport Stream) file from Twitter that crashes Vegas? This should not happen and the developers will be interested in your report.

Can someone upload an actual TS file from Twitter to Drive or Dropbox? I'd like to play with it and give my findings to the developers. I'm temporarily laid up so I have the time.

@Musicvid This is the file I tried

Indeed, VP crashes immediately when importing. (No problem in my other NLE) and rewrapping to mp4 with Shutter Encoder (the Swiss knife for Video does it in a split of a second) solved the issue, as @Former user suggested.

Thanks to all for motivating me to start testing this stuff again. The explanation of the crash, bug report to developers, and two free and fast workarounds are posted here:

Convert TS to MP4 in Seconds without Quality Loss

Found it impossible to use a ts or renamed mpg file with Vegas. This was a good solution that didn't involve hours of useless and quality degrading transcoding. I tried using avi demux, another alternative, but that can be flaky at times. This worked like a champ.

I've joined Twitter since this thread, and their own downloader is giving me MP4 files that open fine in Vegas.
