LG RH188H - what movie file types does it play?

Hello!
I've tried to watch *.avi and *.wvm files in my LG RH188H but it looks like the DVD recorder/player doesn't not even recognise the DVD (and I know it reads both +RW and -RW)! Aren't these file types accepted by this device? If not, what file types must I convert these movies into so that I can watch them?
Thanks in advance for your help,
A.

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.
Mike @ compurepair.

Converting Movies To Psp Fomat


Hey again, this is a real quick guide for anyone interested to get a movie onto there PSP without all the fluff i have seen elsewhere. I just watched africa the Serengeti on my PSP and heres is the lowdown.

Movie- approx 40 minutes - dvd Saved to hard drive - 2.6GIG - using DVD Decryptor (free program) try google
Transfered to avi format - 377MB-using Super
DVD Ripper (9 FREE trial uses) then you must buy
Traansfered to MP4 -37MB -using the (basically free) Image Convertor 2

Average movie breakdown - using above as a guide only.
so im guessing the average movie may be 4.5gig for example sved to 800MB
CONVERTED TO 70-80MB

Ok use DVD decryptor to save the movie to your hard drive eg. C:\africa (it wil save it for you as described) when completed find the folder c:\africa on your computer and find the vob file in that folder - generally the largest one and right click and play it with your dvd program to see what part it is. If its the correct movie part you now know thats the one you need.

Once you have located the vohb file you want to transfer open DVD Ripper and go to wizard icon. There you will see an icon of VOB to AVI button. Click it and then it wil ask to locate the file. Locate the file and click it. It will SCAN THE FILE (just wait till that finishes) a parameter box opens next and just click the arrow. It then askes for file compression - choose microsoft windows media and then click ok Then press the start button. It will now convert the vob into avi format. (there are also other opions ie;dvd to avi etc) I have only used the vob to avi for this test.

After DVD ripper has transferred the file it will save it to the same folder as the original movie was in eg: c:\africa\viteots. Open the file and you will now see an AVI icon containing the movie.

Make sure you PSP is on and in usb mode then open Image converter 2 and press on movie / add to list. For this example i click on c:drive the found the folder Africa and opened it and there was my converted AVI file. Click the file press ok and it will be transfered to your PSP for viewing pleasure.

*****Note***** i only converted one VOB file as thats all there was for this particular movie. If you have more then one vob file you may need toi try the dvd to avi when you rip. This is just smallest possible file so you can get value out of a 512 card.

Good luck!

I'm trying to play movie files through my toshiba lcd tv via a usb and it won't work. i've tried converting mvi and wmv files to mpeg or avi and still won't play. can you tell me which type of file works...


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.

Down loaded flip video to disc. Disc will not play on TV but will play on computer


Hello. There are a few factors as to what would allow or disallow the disc to play. The main reason is going to be the file type the video was saved as. Your computer will have an easy time playing because it can recognize the file type. As for DVD players or TV's with built in DVD players the device will have be able to recognize the file type and know how to play it. For example some DVD players may play a DivX movie but not an AVI. So your player probably doesn't recognize the file type you are wanting it to play. One other possibility is the disc wasn't finalized when burned.

Hi, how to enable subtitles for DivX movies from USB on LG 42LE5500? I connect USB, TV recognizes folder where DivX .avi file is but within same folder it does not "see" .srt subtitle. Also, in settings...


It seems that subtitle file must have exactly same name as movie file. For example: Movie file: Mission impossible.avi Subtitle file: Mission impossible.srt or Mission impossible.sub or Movie file: Mission_impossible.avi Subtitle file: Mission_impossible.srt

Unable to watch movies


Assuming you have the latest firmware update installed (late 2008 I think) Mediagate 450HD won't play MP4 or H264 encoded files. It also won't play MKV or MWV files - there may be others but these are the file types I have encountered the same error when playing. Some MP3 music files won't play either but I have yet to investigate why this is. Solution - convert the file to standard AVI format - keep the same settings as the original file. There are a number of Windows (AVI Convertor) and Mac based programs that do this - Google is your friend. Hope this helps

LG HT762 DVD Player won't play divx anymore?


Try to unplug the player for a few seconds and then plug it back. It should work again with the DivX files. I had an identical problem and since then, it works just fine.
