SOURCE: can't play videos

You need to use the Media Converter that came with the installation CD - must run video files only through it. Check manufacturer's website for software if you no longer have install CD.

Home theater is not reading MP4 Files . how to resolve this issues


For every format (MP4 is not one, but dozens of formats and no standard) you need a player, or on a computer a setting in a program. A DVD player, only can play one format, a DVD format. Actually it is even a coded format. When you have a MP4 file, you should encode it to to the DVD format and then but it to a DVD, before you try to play it in a DVD player. Try reading some articles about video formats on Wikipedia, when it is interesting enough for you to understand different Video (and Audio) formats.

I can't play videos, because it keeps saying format error, and it's annoying


Hi ehoffman7196,
I see you get an error "format error" you mentioned this means that the mp3 player could not play the file you are trying to play.
check the format of the video is it mp3 is it avi is it wmv or possible it may be mp4 that is one reason since you mentioned that the error is format error then it cannot read the file mp4 is the latest format for a video file check first if it is then it really will not play at all.

Warning File Format Error


It seems that your trying to play a video that the media player does not support. The video works on your computer because the computer supports many more video file formats that the media player does. Make sure that the video your trying to play has a .mp4 file extension after the file name, meaning that it is a mp4 file. Try another known working mp4 video file.
good luck and i hope this has helped.
