Problem playing .avi Xvid files via USB stick on Polaroid P40LCD12 tv

Hi all. I have many kids shows and comedy shows from tv on my PC and have always burned them to disk for my family to watch on our tv. decided to upgrade so i could play them directly from a USB stick. The manual for Polaroid model P40LCD12 states it can support .mpg, .mpeg, .dat, .vob and .avi file formats for USB mode (Xvid 1.00, 1.01, 1.02, 1.03 and 1.10-beta1/2) The problem is it doesnt. I only seem to be able to play .mpg or .mpeg and when i try to play an .avi file an error message appears on the screen saying "Invalid or unsupported file". Any and all help or info on this would be most gratefully welcomed and appreciated. Thanks for your time. Mark.

You have not mentioned the TV model #.. If your TV does not play avi. files I am sorry to tell you it does not support moving pictures -- it only supports MP3 music files and JPEG picture files !!. Try these two to confirm.

SOURCE: ive formatted my 8gb flashdrive

AVI is just a format - the video inside it can be coded using just about every codec. That sharp supports files that are coded using DIVX 4 to 6 and XVID 0.8 to 1.3. You must make sure that the avi files were coded correctly. For that install this program and use it to check the files

How do I update to play mp4 films


USB memories formatted NTFS will read XviD videos. Ext3 or FAT formatted will copy or read XviD. MPEG4 is not supported but your TV may be able to show them directly via its USB PORT.

How to watch commercial DVDs on your wide screen TV via WD TV Mini Media Player


WD TV Mini Media Player provides an easy and affordable way to play back your digital media on your wide screen TV.  It serves as a conduit between your TV set and USB drive storage, no matter it is a camcorder, a humble flash drive, or an external HDD. Simply connect WD TV Mini to your TV, plug a USB-connected storage into the player and you are ready to enjoy all your digital media in DVD quality playback.
WD TV Mini Media Player supported media formats:
Videos:
AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG4), MPG/MPEG, VOB/ISO, MP4/MOV (MPEG4), RM or RMVB 8/9/10
Audios:
MP3, WAV/PCM/LPCM, WMA, AAC, FLAC, MKA, OGG, APE
From the above list we can see that VOB is a playable format for WD TV Mini Media Player, does it mean that WD TV Mini can play all kinds of DVDs – whether home made DVDs or commercial DVDs? The answer is WD TV can not decrypt copy protected commercial DVDs, so you have to rip them. This tutorial aims to show you how to make it possible for you to watch commercial DVDs on your wide screen TV via WD TV Mini Media Player. What you will need is Pavtube DVD Ripper, it not only rips, but it encodes too. Following is the detailed operating steps:

Step 1: Click "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" or "IFO/ISO" to load DVD files into this program.

Step 2: Select subtitle and audio track
Click on the pull down menu of "Subtitle" and "Audio" respectively to select your needed subtitle and audio language.
Step 3: Select output format for WD TV Mini Media Player
Click on the drop-down list at the end of "Format" to choose an output format for WD TV Mini Media Player. Your selection should be in the range of AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG4), MPG/MPEG, VOB/ISO, MP4/MOV (MPEG4), RM or RMVB 8/9/10. Here I select "Xvid AVI" as an example:

Step 4: Click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters
The user manual tells us that when playback .avi (Xvid) video files, WD TV Mini supports up to 720*576 30fps or 720*480 30fps, so we need to follow the manual while ripping a DVD.

Step 5: Click "Convert" button to start DVD ripping
Once finished, you can get the generated files for WD TV Mini via clicking on "Open" button with ease. Afterwards, just copy the output files to My Passport portable hard drive or other USB drive, and then connect WD TV Mini to your TV, plug your USB drive into the player and you are ready to enjoy the movies ripped from your commercial DVDs.

What files do a hitachi L32HK04U L support as it wont play my file from my usb stick


This tv will not play , wmv, avi, mov, mkv, or divx, the hitachi uses the xvid codec only, which means your video file types must be mp4, and not the h.264 mp4 either....but true mp4 video, if you have a connected usb drive full of movies, best bet is to download "youtube downloader" (free off the internet) install it to your PC, and use the convert feature to convert your movies to the ipad video mp4 setting, with the "same as original " quality ticked....and convert all your movie files to the xvid codec your tv wants, youtube downloader can convert anything, any filetype even flash. trust me this works 100% i know, i have the Tv, and i do know about codecs and scaling..and metadata....do this will be your best bet guys !!! happy viewing

I plug my passport in to my tv and cannot find my film


Do you see any other files?
If you see, then would you check the compatibility (or readable) of movie files from your TV? (Please, check TV manuals first.)

Although TV says it read a file, for example, 'AVI', it does not mean to play all AVI files.
When someone makes AVI, many codecs can be used like xvid, x264 for video and mp3, ac3, aac and so on.

If you don't see any of your files, copy those movie AND photo files into any usb flesh drive. Then plug in and test.

LG 399d - new - trying to play Avatar movie via the USB port - will not recognise this movie format. In DVDSCR AC3 XVID. AVI. Other movies same format play well not this one. Why? What to fix it? Dave


It is probably a corrupted copy,or perhaps the codec is slightly different from the one, used by player, there could be many reasons indeed. It could be a bad "Header" file. Try re doing the copy again, and see.

When opening uploaded video AVI file all I get is sound, no pic


That sounds like you don't have the proper codec to play AVI files. Even if you haven't had problems with AVI's before these files may be DIVX avi's instead of the usual Xvid. Download the full codec pack here: http://www.codecguide.com/download_kl.htm and install it. Restart your computer and try again and you shouldn't have any problems.
Please rate, thanks!

How can i play AVI files on my media center/player on vista


Hi,
Windows Vista Media Center won’t play Xvid and Avi files, even if Windows Media Player will play these files. If you want to add support for third party codecs including Xvid and Avi files in Vista Media Center then you need to install the media control plugin for Windows Vista Media Center.
To install the Codec please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser..
http://damienbt.free.fr/index.php#download
This plugin allows Windows Vista Media Center to utilize te FFDShow decoder, which needs to be installed seperately ((FFDShow rev 1108 recommended: download the last version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout)) FFDShow adds support to Vista for MPEG-4 video formats like DivX, Xvid, H.264 and also alllows MP3, AAC, Dolby AC3, and OGG Vorbis audio files to be played back.
have any other queries, please let me know..
Thank you.....
