No audio, that's the issue. We allow this in some other formats, like MP4 and MKV, because they're opened by ffmpeg and it has the ability to generate a dummy audio stream to satisfy the rest of the program. But the TS reader doesn't have that ability.

So, a quick run through mkvtoolnix (my 2nd fave!) to remux it to mkv could be a fix?

I'm disappointed, no strange audio stream, but no audio stream....
The internals of VideoReDo require audio. All the syncing and output routines will just stall without it. The only reason we're able to support MP4/MKV without audio is because ffmpeg, which we use for reading those files types, has a mechanism for generating a dummy stream filled with silent frames. However ffmpeg's handling of TS files is not great, so we use our own internal reader for those, but it does not have the ability to generate the dummy stream so it rejects files without an audio stream.

If you want to open this file just run it through MKVToolNix like cp2 suggested. The resulting MKV file will open just fine in VideoReDo.
