what's the point of audio_ts folder?

starting to create some home movies and put them on dvd.. when i do the whole conversion process, i get 2 folders: audio_ts and video_ts.. obviously the video is in the video_ts folder, but the audio appears to be in there also as the audio_ts folder is blank.. is this true? anyone else experience this?

Good question. It's just a standard I suppose and it may need to be there for compatibility with all players, but it's always empty as far as I've ever seen. The audio is embedded in the video files.

Well, there's always one way to find out for sure. Try it on as many stand-alone players as you can.

But if you think about it, how much space do you lose if you leave the audio_ts folder there? 4k or so?

I think the audio_ts folder is for DVD-Audio discs. It only makes sense.

When I create a DVD on my Sony standalone recorder there is no Audio_TS folder. If I copy the contents to my hd, and burn with an empty Audio_TS folder it won't play.
