TS (Transport Stream)

Standard method used in MPEG for converting PES streams into a stream of packets that can easily be transported over links such as an IP network or a satellite link or over a digital television broadcast to a home. Each TS packet is a fixed 188 bytes long, although FEC data can be added, bringing the TS packet size up to 204 or 208 bytes. Note that MPEG IP packets generally contain multiple transport stream packets.
