How can I convert movie files (that I download) with the extension eso.ts to files that can be played by Windows Media Player?

*.ts = Transport Stream (MPEG2)

You need MPEG2 codec. Elecard has a player for MPEG2

I just tested the player and it doesn't recognize *.ts

not to mention any names but this place where you downloaded these movies... have you considered trying the search feature on this nameless site and type in a few key words (eso.ts converter)   you never know what may turn up but i'm betting it will help you see these downloaded movies

You might be able to get away with just installing more codecs; check out the Nimo Codec Pack for example (http://nimo.titanesk.com/), the Tsunami Codec Pack (http://www.divx-digest.com/software/tsunami_pack.html) or the ACE Mega CoDecS Pack (http://ace.subpage.net/ace.php).  The ACE page mentions the pack includes a HDTV codec.

To demux the transport stream you could try:
Womble MPEG Editor (http://www.womble.com/)
MPEG Carver (http://www.bmserver.net/carver_eng.htm)
HDTV to MPEG2 (http://www.cornbread.org/HT/hdtvtompeg2_v110.zip)
VirtualDub Mod  (http://virtualdubmod.sourceforge.net/)

I haven't tried any of them on TS movies sorry.  Check out the docs on those sites and see how you go!

PS: Elecard will only work if you use the Elecard MPEG2 video decoder filter, which costs or you can get a trial version?
