comment How to convert .ts file into main stream file losslessly?
@lacton Try muxing into matroska: ffmpeg -i 10MB.ts -c copy output.mkv. You will get error: Error parsing AAC extradata, unable to determine samplerate. That is why my MKV example re-encoded the audio. Also see #4472: AAC copy from stream without encoding fails and lavf/mkv: Fix AAC remuxing. However, none of this may apply to your large, untruncated input file and it may work as expected.

@SuperSluether Lossless makes huge files. By "lossless" I believe lacton meant "remuxing".

I'm not familiar with VLC for converting, but I added an answer using ffmpeg.

You mentioned you wanted to remux, not re-encode if possible. Are you sure VLC is only remuxing?

comment Batch convert H.265 mkv to H.264 with ffmpeg to make files compatible for re-encoding
Consider stream copying the audio with -c:a copy instead of re-encoding. Also, 0:0 may not always refer to video, and 0:1 may not always refer to audio. You can use a stream specifier to avoid potential issues: -map 0:v -map 0:a if you want all video and audio streams from input 0, or -map 0:v:0 -map 0:a:0 if you only want the first video and audio streams from input 0. If you only want the English audio stream: -map 0:m:language:eng (assuming it is labeled).

comment Hauppauge 610 Analog Video Capture Script or Command
@jbrock I don't think I can provide much without more info about your inputs, such as the console output of: ffmpeg -f v4l2 -i /dev/video0 -f alsa -i default

comment Hauppauge 610 Analog Video Capture Script or Command
Why are you going from MPEG-2 video -> MPEG-2 video -> H.264? If the device already outputs MPEG-2 video then you should simply re-mux it, or if you want H.264 encode directly to that and skip handbrake.

comment Is Ubuntu 15.10 safe for an Ubuntu beginner?
Have you considered trying it as a VM first? That way you can get some experience with installation and usage without needing to worry about messing anything up.

comment Leave old kernels installed could be dangerous?
I've encountered this as well on a way-too-small /boot partition. Quite annoying.
