I am trying to open .ts files in my Android tablet but it's prompting me to open with any Video Player installed on my device

.ts files are typescript files just like .js JavaScript files but typescript superset of JavaScript

I am trying to open them and edit them in an app called AIDE-web.


If I change the extension I am able to open the file and edit the text but I don't want to do this

So how can I open open these files to view or edit them

Device details:

  • running lineageOS (android 7.1.10

  • Device is rooted


I believe that it depends on your file manager how a file will be opened. So here's a workaround. Download a file manager called Amaze, find the file you are looking for, press on the three dots next to the file name, and select "open with" this will allow you to open the file in any app you want to.

I only tested this with amaze file manager, but I would imagine that the same options exist in other file manager apps.

  • Now i am able to open the file only in note editors, still AIDE app is not supporting it.....but anyhow thanks for the workaround :) Dec 20 '17 at 7:55
  • If you press on "other" (second screenshot) and select AIDE app, and it tells you that it's not supported, then It means that the app was not made to support that kind of file.
