    video formats

    Hello everyone
    My name is Lino Gatt and I am from Malta. For those of you who do not know Malta is a very small island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. It has 400, 000 inhabitants and has recently been classified as the most populated country on earth. Anyway,my problem is this (actually I do not know whether it IS a problem; please help.
    I download films from the internet which I then copy on the pendrive to watch on the TV. The format is always mp4. When the resolution is 1080p it works fine without any problem. If less I get the message "video format not supported". Is this an error message? If so can I do something about it?
    Thanks for your help

    Hi Lino,

    Could you please supply your TV model number?

    Also more information about the file you are trying to play would be helpful, such as the video codec in the .mp4 container.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    Hi Ina
    thanks for your reply
    The TV model is 42PFL4208M/08
    As for the other info can't help much but here's what I can give:
    The downloaded film was Mission Impossible I (rather old, I admit)
    Its size was approx 648 mb
    Quality 720
    Resolution : 1280*532
    Frame Rate 23.976

    The info on the film was VLC Media File (.mp4)

    Hope this info in enough for you.

    Regards
    Lino

    Hi Lino.

    Without the codec information of the file I won't be able to tell you exactly why the file isn't playing. The message "Video format not supported" does however strongly indicate that the video codec in the file is not supported by the TV.

    You can find the multimedia information for your TV set in the user manual from page 67:
    http://philips.to/1oLCe9S

    On page 68 you will find the supported codec requirements for the MP4 file container.

    Please check with the file provider that the file you have acquired is within these specifications.

    Best regards,
    Ina

    hey lino
    i also had headaches trying to figure what these philips tv's accept (they weren't the best choice apparently )
    anyway, i download x264 TV shows.. they're mp4 with AAC audio.

    you need to look for x264 AAC.. *then check the file extension to make sure it's mp4, not mkv. (unfortunately most movie releases are avi or mkv)

    hope that helps some
