Opening TTS files

Did your computer fail to open a TTS file? We explain what TTS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your TTS files.

What is a TTS file?

The .tts file extension is mainly a digital video and movie file type often encoded with MPEG- 2 video data. Mostly known as MPEG-TS (MPEG Transport Stream), the .tts files store video and audio data that are associated with several other extensions such as .mpg, .ts, and .m2ts. It is also a common multimedia container format for recording and streaming multi-plexed video and audio files.

There are two types of .tts file: unencrypted and encrypted. Playing unencrypted .tts video files can be done in various multimedia players like Windows Media and VLC. But encrypted .tts files are less flexible, which is why they can only be played on devices where the files were generated or recorded. Examples of devices that save video recordings in encrypted .tts file format are the following: (1) TV units with recording features like Panasonic Viera, (2) PVRs or the Personal Video Recorder, and (3) DVB- Digital Video Broadcasting systems. To make it playable across other media players, encrypted .tts files can be converted into standard MPEG video format using the appropriate video converter.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
