I just downloaded a movie and it was in .mp4 format "sbs_1080p_8000.mp4" so I'm guessing it's SBS format. I dragged it onto my USB drive and connected to my LG TV, the video doesn't work, no sound or video as it says the video is not supported. I tried converting it to .mkv thinking it doesn't support .mp4, I used mp42mkvac to do it and still same error. It doesn't work at all.

Does anyone know what's wrong with it and what should I do to get this movie playing on my LG 3DTV?

Thanks all!

Well the problem is, mkv and mp4 are just containers. The codec inside is what matters.

Whatever codec your tv supports.

I just used MediaInfo and this is what came up.



I have a LM5800 LG 3DTV and I'm not sure what codec works with this TV.

The format is AVC, so I'm going to guess the LG TV doesn't support it? What Codec/format should I convert the file to without losing audio and video quality?

Edit: Seems like the LG TV does support AVC(from google?) so what exactly is wrong with this file? I can play it on my computer just fine but when I try plugging the USB thumb drive(1.3GB 3D Video) it doesn't play, no video or audio.

Wow! It works now! So after some googling, instead of High@5.1, I used H264LevelEditor and changed it to High@4.1 and it works...a simple change lol

I was just going to suggest that, most tv's don't like the High Profile.
