    What would be best video format to stream to Philips?

    Streamed some .avi file to my Philips and whilst on the whole the picture was not too bad it did break up quite often

    I have a video convertor which can convert any video format to any other - incl frame rate, screen size, format (.wmv . mp4 , divx etc)

    Just wondering what would be best video format to stream to Philips?

    If you look at the xls sheet in this thread: http://www.supportforum.philips.com/...S-and-Blu-ray)

    Then you can find out the best container to use together with which codec.

    But it seems that the best are:
    * mkv file with h.264 and AAC audio
    * wmv
    * mp4 with AAC audio
    * MPEG2 (TS and MPG)

    I prefer mkv since it is a very flexible container to manipulate (add / remove / re-code ) audio.
    It also allows you to add subtitbles etc (Which is not supported in the TV...)

    Ofcourse you have to start from a good source, if your avi files are PAL resolution and not HD then no conversion software can help you.

    The same is ofcourse true for the framerate, sound, etc...
