    Firstly, hello to everyone since this is my first post within the forum.

    I'm not fantastic when it comes to changing movies to different formats etc, i have Nero platinum and other software which i have used in the past, but some of them kill my computer so have uninstalled them...anyway...

    My query is this: I have kids who have lots of DVD's, and I learned the hard way (and the expensive way) in regards to how easily they scratched and needed replaced. Anyway...I bought a TV for the kids with a USB port to allow them to watch DVD's from a USB stick. It was a cheapo Technika 18.5 LED TV, and the handbook explained what could and could not be viewed in terms of file types.

    The TV plays the following:
    MPEG: MPEG-1, MPEG-2:
    AVI: XVID,MJPEG,MPEG4,SP/ASP
    .TS: MPEG-2
    MP4: MPEG-1,MPEG-2
    VOB: MPEG-2

    and The Max Data Rate is: 40MBPS

    Now, I have a movie in 2 file types. It's the same movie and runs the same amount of time in both formats.

    First Movie Details:

    File Type:
    MP4
    File Size: 780MB
    Movie Length: 1 hr 42 Mins
    Movie Frame Width: 1280
    Move Frame Height: 570
    Data Rate: 949KBPS
    Total Bit Rate: 1063 KBPS
    Frame Rate: 23 FPS

    Second Movie Details:

    File Type:
    AVI
    File Size: 3.53GB
    Movie Length: 1 hr 42 Mins
    Movie Frame Width: 1280
    Move Frame Height: 576
    Data Rate: 4052KBPS
    Total Bit Rate: 4500 KBPS
    Frame Rate: 23 FPS

    Only one of the movies work, and at first glance the second movie's data rate is above what the TV claims to play, and so i thought automatically that was it, but its actually the First Movie that DOESN'T play!!.

    Is there anything I'm missing with regards to this? Would appreciate any feedback or assistance.

    Many Thanks in Advance

    J

    Does the first movie in fact have either type of video?
    I'm more used to seeing MP4 using H264/AVC video.

    A program like MediaInfo could confirm the content.
    Try the portable version.
