Your graphic card has two digital TV outputs, so all you need to do is to purchase a DVI cable and connect your PC to your TV (unless your PC is close enough to 'borrow' the cable from your PC, and you're only doing this on a one-time basis. If your TV doesn't have DVI input, you can purchase a DVI > VGA adapter; but most TV's today have DVI input. The next step is to output your sound to your surround sound system, or your TV will be silent. If you don't have any sound output slots left to plug into, you can purchase a 'Y' - adapter for your speaker port, or else if your PC has a second speaker jack on the front, you could just use that since you're only going to watch temporarily anyway.

I've run a cable from my PC to my TV, and used a 'Y' - adapter on my speaker output, leading to my surround sound amplifier, but since it draws my available wattage to my computer speakers on my computer down quite a bit, I simply unplug the cable leading to the surround sound amplifier when I'm not using it.

Hope this will FixYa.

When i plug my usb stick into the tv to watch a movie,it does not show,it will only show images(Photos)


Does your TV support the movie format you are trying to watch? Should be AVI, but actually not even all AVI movies are supported. If you are watching AVI on a software player, you can find the appropiate Codec, but you can't modify the video decoder of a TV set.

Q: I have a collection of Anime, movie, etc. and then I have an iPhone. Most of the anime and movie are in Avi format, now I’m wondering if and how I can convert these avi videos to Mp4 for playback on my iPhone? (By the way, I have a pc running on Windows 7), Thanks!

A: If you have an iPhone, you may have encountered the same problem. You have bunch of movies which you have downloaded from internet, and you want to pull out your iPhone to watch a few clips when you’re bored on the road or if you have extra time between classes. While your iPhone only accepts videos in MP4 or MOV format, but most of your downloaded movies are in AVI format. And that is the question- how to put downloaded movies in AVI format to your iPhone so you can enjoy them on the go? Basically, it is not difficult to make it. What you have to do is to convert avi file to mp4 for playback on your iPhone.

Things You'll Need
An iPhone
Downloaded movies or videos in AVI format
AVI to MP4 Converter
A PC running on Windows OS (including Windows7 OS)

A PC running on Windows OS (including the latest Windows7)
For those windows users, there are various AVI to MP4 converters, both free and paid, such as free Handbreak, but for windows 7 users, like me, the only one I had a good luck is Wondershare DVD Converter Ultimate, which is handy for converting AVI to MP4 files and transferring these AVI files for iPhone. Now, let’s check out it together.

Steps to convert AVI to MP4 on windows 7 for your iPhone:


Step 1: Free download this Wondershare DVD Converter Ultimate, install and run it.

Step 2: Add AVI files

Loading AVI movies will be your first step. Click "Add Video" or just drag & drop your AVI files to the file list directly, you can easily add AVI files.

Step 3: Select MP4 as output format

Select iPhone video MP4 as output format from the categorized output formats list in "Profile" drop-down list and specify the output directory to save your converted files in "Output" drop-down list.

Step 4: Start to convert AVI to MP4 file
After you select MP4 format, hit the Start button to convert AVI to MP4 files. And all the tasks will be done at fast speed and high quality.

Step 5: Transfer MP4 files to iPhone
The last step is to transfer converted MP4 files to iPhone. Of course, you can use iTunes which is free but it only provides one way solution to transfer files from PC to iPhone. There is another option if you still want to get your iPhone files back to PC, you can use an iPhone Transfer, which can transfer files between iPhone and PC freely.

Tip:
If you want to edit your movies, such as splitting it into sveral clips, adding subtiltes, or adding watermarks etc, you can click "Edit" to make tailor-made movies as you like.

That's it, with easy steps you can convert AVI to MP4 for your iPhone. Enjoy watching movies anytime and anywhere.

Hello nursedoreen,
It all depends on your TV. Not all tv's can play movies, and even the ones that can play movie files, it cannot play every type of format. Try changing your file format. Try avi, mkv, mp4 and so on. I hope this helps, give me a feedback if it doesn't. good luck.

The following formats can be played on Windows media player:

avi
mov
mp4
mpg
mpeg

Normally DVD players cannot read compressed formats, if you have a regular DVD/MP3 player, that wont read any of the formats above, or with some luck will read only uncoded Avi, mov or mpeg.

The formats above are all compressed formats, and often they need additional software call codecs, they can be read on computers, but they generally are not working on dvd players.

To be sure that a DVD will read compressed computer movies, you need a special DVD player with Divx , like the one below:

LG RH188H - what movie file types does it play?


Hi,
AVI are a certain type of movie file.
Your problem is most likely that you do not, have the correct software ( program ) installed on your computer to view these files, yet i believe do play on a normal DVD Player.
you could try Windows Media player, this may work for you. also power DVD or Similar. although there are newer programs out there. as for the conversion, this is a long winded process in itself. To convert AVI To MPEG ( standard DVD Format ) you need unpacking tools and software, And a relatively high spec PC, Lots Of Memory.
Hope this guides you.
