What kind of USB device are you using?
What video format are the movies?
Is this a SMART TV or just a TV with a USB port?

    What kind of USB device are you using?
    Most smart TV's won't work with a large (non self powered) external drive. Try putting a few movies on a smaller self powered drive, either a thumb drive or the WD Passport.
    What video format are the movies?
    Not all video formats can be played by the TV, the most common video type is .AVI if your files are MP4 you may need a converter. For Mac users try HandBrake.
    Is this a SMART TV or just a TV with a USB port?
    If this isn't a SMART TV chances are that USB port is for service only so it won't recognize the drive when plugged in. There's no work around for this. Your TV won't play movies from USB source.

I have a 50 inch Samsung Plasma Display TV PS50Q91HDX/XSA. I would like to know if a USB memory stick will work on this TV to watch movies. Thank you.


If you have a usb input and the set has the correct codecs built in, you will be able to watch a movie. May not work with all files. The usb input on a dvd blue ray will usually work with everything however.

I use a USB when watching movies. The movie I was watching tonight did not finish, the screen went black at around 01:28:05 and restarted from the beginning, why did that happen?


It doesnt really matter as of how many movies are there in the USB. There is a chance that the movie might be corrupted. Just check it in your computer and see. The movie file itself must have been corrupted.

Can i watch movies on my visual land tablet


Yes you can.

First you need to get movies on the tablet.
You can do this in several ways.
1) You can download movies from internet directly on the tablet.
2) You can connect the tablet to a computer via USB and copy movie files to the tablet.
3) My favorite: buy a 32GB SD Card and a USB card reader. Use the card reader on a computer to copy movies to the SD Card. Then install the SD Card in the tablet. You can watch the movies on your tablet from the inserted SD Card.

Movies are mostly very large files.
Keeping them on a removable SD Card prevents using up all the internal storage space of your tablet.
Organizing movies on the SD Card using a card reader on a separate computer usually works faster.

I hope this helps!

Usb to watch movies on television


You need some sort of computer to watch a movie through the media station of the L2320A. The USB ports on the unit are a USB hub (one connection to the computer, two for devices); without a computer they are useless. Some of the media players (DVD/Blue-ray/media streaming units) that can play a movie from a USB drive without additional computing power. The format of the movie on the drive will limit which device can play the movie.

I wish that I had better news for you. Retrevo has a link to the manual for the L2320A here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/LG-L2320A-Monitors-manual/id/440ci363/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the file.

Using usb stick


First you will have either copy and pate the movie or download it to your usb drive

One of the benefits of putting files on a USB flash drive is that you can make any type of file portable.


This includes not only documents, spreadsheets and photos, but also media like video clips and movies.


If you have movies saved on your flash drive that you want to view, watching the movies directly from the USB drive is a simple process and can be achieved on almost any computer.


Connect your USB drive to the device on which you want to watch your movies.

This includes all USB-compatible computers, as well as some select television-compatible devices (like the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Sony Media Extender).


Launch the file explorer application on your device.

In Windows, access this utility by accessing the "Computer" application and then double-clicking the USB drive to display the files.


If you are trying to watch the movie files on a compatible television device, look for a "media," "device" or "USB input" application or button to bring up the file explorer.


Select the movie file you want to play.

In Windows, do this by double-clicking on the file.


The appropriate media-handling program should automatically launch and begin playing the movie automatically.


If you are using a television device, select the file from the list of compatible files in the device's internal explorer system.


hope this helps
