  • Video Playing on TV Via USB

    A lot of times when I download a video onto a USB flash drive it will not play on my TV. This is how I am downloading it to final file. mpeg2 HD program stream at 25mps video and PCM audio.

    I haven't tried it on any other TV.
    There are some videos on my USB flash drive that will play on my TV and I'm pretty sure it's the same format because it's the only one I use.

    what USB format does your TV support? Fat32? NTFS? exFat?

    make sure you format the USB correctly before placing the mpeg2 HD file on it

      I've tried numerous videos on numerous USB flash drives and still doesn't work.

      I just looked in my manual and this is what it says: The USB function might not work properly with unlicensed multimedia files.

      Read this information before using
      Media Play (USB)
      with a USB device:
      x
      Only alphanumeric characters must be used as a folder name or file name (photo, music).
      x
      The file system supports FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS.
      x
      Certain types of USB Digital camera and audio devices may not be compatible with this TV.
      x
      Media Play (USB) only supports the USB Mass Storage Class device (MSC). MSC is a Mass Storage Class Bulk-
      Only Transport device. Examples of MSC are Thumb drives and Flash Card Readers (Both USB and HUB are not
      supported.)
      x
      USB HDD is not supported. A USB device that requires high power(more than 0.5A) may not be supported.

        so is your USB formatted Fat32 or NTFS?

        and are you using legal file names?

        illegal file name: My Video.mpg
        legal file name: My-Video.mpg
        legal file name: My_Video.mpg

          Success, I reformatted it over to an NTFS file. The videos play perfectly now on my TV.

          Now my other concern is when I give them to customers will the videos play on their TVs. I realize this is out of our control.

          Thanks Anton!

            typically, any TV with USB playback option should understand NTFS, it is the format of choice for large files

              Thank you, Anton. I will now make it a habit to format all USBs over to NTFS.
              I will also check with my customers periodically and make sure the USBs play on their TVs.

              Thanks again!
