It support some video formats supported are .mpg, .mpeg, .m2ts, .mp4, .divx (.avi does not always work!!!) .wmv, and .asf
Some audio formats supported are .mp3, .m4a, .wma, .wav
Also .jpg and .jpeg are supported.

And please format your NTFS to FAT32.

You can use Leawo Video Converter to convert your MKV video to nay video formats which I mentioned.

Hi - Sony details the video codecs supported as of 3/12/11 as:

Video Codecs:

MPEG-2: Enhanced for HD, also used for playback of DVDs and HDTV recordings.


MPEG-4 AVC: Part of the MPEG-4 standard also known as H.264 (High Profile and Main Profile).


SMPTE VC-1: A standard based on Microsoft® Windows Media® Video (WMV) technology.


The player doesn't know how to handle the .MKV wrapper. I suggest you use a tool such as Handbrake (freeware available HERE) to re-encode the videos to a compatible format.

Enjoy the videos and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Hi i have LG 42pg20 plasma tv , it have divx built in but it cannot able to play mkv file format , but avi or mpeg play , how can i upgrade divx software in tv to divx plus . divx plus can play mkv...


you can't and DIVX is an AVI format. MKV is an entirely different encoding format. There are no TVs or DVD players that support MKV. Also you will not get a DVD player that will paly BlueRay. DVD and BluRay require 2 different lasers on the drive to read the format so your software will not allow for this through a USB or hdmi either. You have what you have and there is nothing you can do aside from using the PC the movies were pirated from and connect it to the TV.

Sorry but you wont be able to put a file larger than 4gb due to file format limitation since you used fat32. only NTFS supports files larger than 4gb. if you want to use it with large files you need to format again using NTFS. hope that helps!

Hi,
You need to run optical cable either from tv audio out or bluray audio out to Yamaha to get bluray surround sound, I'm afraid, there is no other choice/ option.
Thanks.

BD-HP21 cannot find update on my flash drive. Formatted the flash drive twice (FAT32 & NTFS) extracted the zip file on to the hard drive and copied the update file to the flash drive. Help!


Let's start from the beginning again. Go ahead and reformat your usb device to fat 32 wiping everything. Next go to www.sharp.ca
Click on Service Support on the left and next click on downloads. Select Bluray, next and then your model number, done.

Then save the firmware directly to your usb device.

If the usb device is larger than 4GB it might not work.
If the download still does not work try formatting the usb device again this time to fat and then dowloading again.

You may need to reset the bluray player. Hold down the power button on the front of the unit until it says reset. Then put the usb device into the player before turning it back on. Press setup-->settings--->software update.

LG BD350C Bluray Player won't read 1gb MKV files from USB stick


Your USB device needs to be Fat16 or Fat32 but as for reading mkv files I have the same issue. Not to mention it playing divx files in a choppy fashion.

Unable to read mkv and avi video files from usb drive on philips dvp5990 dvd player


what error does it give? mine reads avis fine, as long as theyre within resolution limits. same for windows media format. couldnt get the mkv files to work though. the usb drive has to be formatted fat32, ntfs does not seem to work. burning these files to dvd as a data disc is another option. lets you fit 10+ hours of video on the disc vs your standard 2 or 4 hour max limits.
