    Can you try a video editing software trial at all? Download something like a 7 day trial of Adobe Premier Pro go to the video suite with whichever file you want to convert load it in and then do an export as they've got a load of different file type options?

    Might need a bit more detail about what you're trying to achieve? What format are you looking to go from/to etc?

    The free version of DaVinci Resolve is incredible and relatively easy to use with the aid of bit of YouTube tutorials etc. You only need a standard mouse/keyboard to use it not a whole full on editing suite like some of their photos show.

    I've used Adobe Premiere and Sony Vegas in the past and this seems very up there. I'm not a pro, I've just used them to cut-up a few videos with transitions etc.

    Aye I've got premier elements so its the light version of pro that's why i referenced that one but like yourself I've just used it for chopping together football highlights so only scratched the surface for what it can do.

    For such a small file why not just use your own machine?

    I tend to use AVIdemux, but it's not the most beginner friendly.

    I'm not sure how many online converters would do 5gb, if you've not tried it Handbrake is extremely easy to use and does all sorts of things.
    IIRC it's only a few megs to download and reasonably fast even with older hardware.

    As already suggested....use Handbrake. Unless you (and the online converter) have extremely fast internet, it's likely to be faster doing it locally.

    ts can also be transport stream, it's the format I get if I record stuff off TV on my PC (I have a couple of cheap Freeview HD USB sticks). VLC etc plays them fine.

    If you open it in MediaInfo (https://mediaarea.net/en/MediaInfo) it should confirm exactly what type of format it is.
