This means that you may have used a file format that the device does not support. Try looking on the Sony website on the specs to see what kind of file types it takes. Then try again with the proper formats.

How to do Blu-ray playback using Media Player Classic Homecinema


Media Player Classic Home Cinema is an extremely light-weight free program for Windows. It looks just like Windows Media Player v6.4, but has much more additional features. You can use it as a Media Player Classic Home Theater. MPC Homecinema supports a wide range of decoding formats and file formats, following are the details:

Supported Decoding:
MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 playback. Media Player Classic is capable of VCD, SVCD and DVD playback, without the need to install any additional software or codecs.

It has built-in codecs for MPEG-2 video and codecs for LPCM, MP2, AC3 and DTS audio, and also contains an improved MPEG splitter that supports playback of VCDs and SVCDs using its VCD/SVCD/XCD Reader. A *.mp4 and MPEG-4 Timed Text support added. An AAC decoding filter makes MPC suitable for AAC playback in MP4.

MPC Home Cinema also has H.264 and VC-1 with DXVA support, DivX, Xvid, and Flash Video formats is available in MPC HC. MPC can also use the QuickTime and the RealPlayer architectures. Media Player Classic supports native playback of OGM and Matroska container formats.

Supported Video, Audio and Image File Formats:
WAV, WMA, MP3, OGG, SND, AU, AIF, AIFC, AIFF, MIDI, MPEG, MPG, MP2, VOB, AC3, DTS, ASX, M3U, PLS, WAX, ASF, WM, WMA, WMV, AVI, CDA, JPEG, JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP, D2V, MP4, SWF, MOV, QT, FLV

To make commercial Blu-ray movies playable with Media Player Classic Homecinema, one thing you have to do is using a blu ray disc ripper to remove copy protections before your playback. The following contents will give you the detailed steps.

Note:
If you are using a powerful PC, you can do the following "Directly Copy". When playback, MP Classic Homecinema will automatically download codecs as needed, so you are able to successfully play m2ts files directly copied from the BD disc, which have the same quality as the original.

1. Load Blu-ray files to Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper
Three ways are available – "BD/DVD ROM", "BD/DVD Folder", and "IFO/ISO".

2. Select output format
Click on the dropdown list at the end of "Format", then follow "Copy">"Directly Copy".

blurayripper_copy_100419.jpg

Note:
If you are using a slower PC, we suggest you not to select "Directly Copy", because your slower PC will attempt to play the output m2ts files, but the sound does not keep up. So other formats supported by Media Player Classic Homecinema are recommended. To remain the high quality of a Blu-ray movie, you can choose "HD Video" as output format as below:

blurayripper_hdvideo_100419.jpg

3. Click "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters
Note that this option is unavailable if you are using "Directly Copy". Generally speaking, the default settings are able to satisfy your needs basically, but if you have higher expectations of the output files, you can adjust all the following video and audio parameters according to your own requirements.

4. Click "Convert" button to start Blu-ray ripping
As soon as the ripping work is finished, you can get the output files for MPC Homecinema via tapping "Open" button. After that, you can import the files to MPC HC for playback. Have fun.

Additional Tips:
More than "Directly Copy" and format conversion, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper also supports "Full Disk Copy", which enables you to get a standard Blu-ray structure ready for burning.

I need to know what video format this supports cause it told me mp4 and it doesnt read it, it just says file not supported


Gogear Vibe can be SA1xxx or SA2xxx and the supported video file types are different. I think you have SA2xxx bacause it uses mp4 format. In this case:

To ensure playback of video files such as .mp4:
  • Always use Philips Songbird to transfer the files.
  • Make sure Quick Time (latest version) and Windows Media Player 11 (or higher) has been installed before Philips Songbird is installed.
Visit the following websites for Quick Time and Windows Media Player:
Good luck!

How come I can't play a video with AVCHD format on my laptop? My laptop is an HP Pavillion DV7


Each of the AVCHD camcorders ships with software designed to playback the files on your computer. Sony's HDR-SR1 and the newer HDR-SR5 both record video in the AVCHD format and ship with the Picture Motion Browser, which plays back AVCHD files on most computers. If you purchased one of the Panasonic AVCHD camcorders, the included HD Writer should allow you to playback video recorded with your camcorder.
  

While the bundled applications work, my personal preference, is Cyberlink PowerDVD Ultra, which supports playback of the AVCHD files and a whole host of other high definition formats. In addition to playing back your HD camcorder files, PowerDVD Ultra plays back Blu-ray and HD-DVD disks (with the accompanying drives connected, of course). PowerDVD Ultra also makes it possible to expand your HD video editing options, by using the included codecs to render the AVCHD video in apps like VirtualDub.

Cyberlink PowerDVD ultra can be downloaded from here :

How do I play MPEG recordings?


Using Windows Media Player You need Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher and Sharp G.726 Audio Codec in order to play MPEG4 files from the Memory Stick on your PC. If you are not currently using Microsoft Windows Media Player Version 9 or higher. Important: The Sharp G.726 Audio Codec needed to play MPEG4 files is no longer signed by Microsoft. If Sharp G.726 Audio Codec is not properly installed on your PC, it will not play MPEG4 Audio. Using DivX® You can also download a free DivX® Player and codec to play your MPEG and other video format files. DivX® for Windows is a free codec built to play every version of DivX content. The DivX codec also plugs into your existing video software so you can view and create high-quality DivX videos at a fraction of the original size. The DivX codec also adds DivX video playback support to most popular media players.
