I tried to play an .mp4 file via the USB Port on the BDP3280, yet it was declared as an unsupported format.

If I connect the same USB stick to my Philips 42PFL7666K/02 TV, the file works perfectly.

Is there some kind of bug in the BR player? FW is 2.21 and I have not found any firmware updates for it.

and if you know from which year your BDP is, take a look at: http://www.supportforum.philips.com/en/showthread.php?2578-Supported-CODEC-overview-for-Blu-ray-players&p=13128&viewfull=1#post13128

My player is a 2011 model.

MediaInfo tells me the file has the following codec:
Format : AVC
Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec
Format profile : High@L4.2
Format settings, CABAC : Yes
Format settings, ReFrames : 3 frames
Codec ID : avc1
Codec ID/Info : Advanced Video Coding
Duration : 1h 25mn
Bit rate : 1 544 Kbps
Maximum bit rate : 12.3 Mbps
Width : 720 pixels
Height : 400 pixels
Display aspect ratio : 16:9
Frame rate mode : Constant
Frame rate : 25.000 fps
Color space : YUV
Chroma subsampling : 4:2:0
Bit depth : 8 bits
Scan type : Progressive
Bits/(Pixel*Frame) : 0.214
Stream size : 946 MiB (92%)

As I said, the same file plays on my TV via USB with no problems.

TV: 42PFL7666K/02 (Current FW)
BD: BDP3280/12 FW: 2.21

Hi, as stated in the codec sheet this is not supported.
Change it to level 4.0 and see what happens

What do you mean by "Change it to level 4.0"?

How do I do that?

Use a codec converter to change it to a different level. There is a lot of them like K-lite for example...

since from time to time, i hv to check the codec, i use mediainfo

using that allows you change some of the parameters as well (so eventually u can adjust down the profile)
