I have recently purchased the Sony BDP-S270, and am happy with the playback of certain AVI files. The official manual doesn't list AVI as a supported video format, but as long as I rename the file extension to MP4, it plays fine.
However, not all AVI files are compatible. This disappoints me, and has led me to researching more information on compatible codecs for this Blu-Ray player. I have learned to use a tool called MediaInfo to get detailed information on the AVI files that work and that do not work.
Can someone with more knowledge and experience explain why I'm experiencing a problem viewing some AVI files on my BDP-S270? The error message I get is "Corrupted or unsupported file."
Here is the information from MediaInfo on the AVI files:
AVI file that plays: MPEG-4 Advanced Simple Profile (L5)
AVI file that doesn't play: MPEG-4 AVC High Profile (L5.1)
The Blu-Ray player is updated to the latest firmware Version M03.R.742 (2/10/2011). I appreciate any help to remedy this. If remuxing is a possible solution, please point me in the right direction. I have played with Avidemux and tsMuxer with no success.
