TS is a common file format for streaming video. It is used to store video images on DVD discs. Playback is possible using a variety of DVD players and tools that edit the video. In TS format, video compression is performed using MEPG-2. This is the video codec standard (.MPEG). TS files (or Video Transport Stream File) are stored on a DVD. Their structure consists of several separate files: "moviename 1.ts", "moviename 2.ts", etc. They can be played back by software that is designed to play DVDs. Video editors are also suitable for this. In order to broadcast HDTV (high-definition television), the TS format is also used, which is specially designed taking into account that the signal reception capabilities may change. TS format provides the ability to correct errors if the signal is weak. If you compare with other formats, it also better synchronizes the video stream. TS is designed to store and transmit audio, data and video in ATSC and DVB systems. TS files can be reformatted to .QPH files using the conversion utility provided with Nokia Qt SDK. Compared to TS, files with the extension QPH can be used for more applications. TS and QPH files are stored in XML format.
AIF (AIFF) is an audio file format. Under the name Audio Interchange File Format (AIFF), it was developed in 1988 by Apple Computer Corporation. At the same time, the IFF format from the developer Electronic Arts has become the base. This format is commonly used on Apple Macintosh PCs. An AIFF file is an uncompressed CD-quality audio that is very similar to the .WAV format. Since there is no compression in AIFF, the file takes up more space compared to compressed counterparts: 1 minute of standard stereo audio usually takes about 10 MB. AIFF is a format that has found application in professional audio and video applications, because compared to such a popular format as mp3, the sound does not lose quality in it. The extension for a standard file of this format is .AIFF or .AIF. AIFF is mainly used in working with sound professionals who need to preserve high-quality sound bites, sound tracks. Most types of musical equipment support the loading of sound clips in AIFF format. AIFF audio files are usually large. They occupy approximately 10 MB per minute of sound. AIFF audio files have good support among universal players and multimedia software.
