Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a **** Smith GE4203 DVD player, but none of the "MPEG4" files I plug in with a USB stick works. The machine recognises an AVI file, but doesn't play it. What settings should I use? Video quality default is 1800, fps 29.97, video codec DivX. What should they be? Thanks

Rip your DVD's using XviD format and not DivX and they should play just fine.

A good free software to try is "Winx Free DVD to XviD" but you'll have to have unprotected DVD's or rip them to the hard drive first using DVDFab to remove the protection or just have Slysoft AnyDVD running.
I set the video's audio to mp3 format (128Kbps 48000sample rate), and the video to 25fps(because in Australia we have PAL format), output profile to keep original size and aspect ratio, and video quality to about 1500kbps.
You won't get much benefit from a higher bit rate then that on a GE4203 screen and you could probably even go lower if you have speed or sync issues with the data rate. Even 1200 looks good.

From the above list we can see that VOB is a playable format for WD TV Mini Media Player, does it mean that WD TV Mini can play all kinds of DVDs – whether home made DVDs or commercial DVDs? The answer is WD TV can not decrypt copy protected commercial DVDs, so you have to rip them. This tutorial aims to show you how to make it possible for you to watch commercial DVDs on your wide screen TV via WD TV Mini Media Player. What you will need is Pavtube DVD Ripper, it not only rips, but it encodes too. Following is the detailed operating steps:

Step 1: Click "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" or "IFO/ISO" to load DVD files into this program.

Step 2: Select subtitle and audio track
Click on the pull down menu of "Subtitle" and "Audio" respectively to select your needed subtitle and audio language.
Step 3: Select output format for WD TV Mini Media Player
Click on the drop-down list at the end of "Format" to choose an output format for WD TV Mini Media Player. Your selection should be in the range of AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG4), MPG/MPEG, VOB/ISO, MP4/MOV (MPEG4), RM or RMVB 8/9/10. Here I select "Xvid AVI" as an example:

Step 4: Click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters
The user manual tells us that when playback .avi (Xvid) video files, WD TV Mini supports up to 720*576 30fps or 720*480 30fps, so we need to follow the manual while ripping a DVD.

Afterwards, just copy the output files to My Passport portable hard drive or other USB drive, and then connect WD TV Mini to your TV, plug your USB drive into the player and you are ready to enjoy the movies ripped from your commercial DVDs.

My Transcend Tsonic 850 can't play video. I converted my video to .MTV but it still said "No support".


T.sonic 850 only supports ".mtv" video files. You must use the "Transcend MTV Video Converter"
Software to convert ".MPEG4," ".DivX," ".AVI" and ".xVID" video files to the ".mtv" format.
This converter software should be on the CD you had together with your device.

Good luck!

I hooked up my GZ-HD3 camcorder to my CU-VD3U share station, copied all files to dvd-R and my dvd's will not play in ANY dvd player. How do I correct this?


It all depends on what file type your camcorder save video's in and what file types are compatible with your DVD player.

Many camcorders save files on a card as MPEG4, you have to check what yours does.

Its ok to write to a DVD but you have to make sure your DVD player can play MPEG4. If not then convert your files or save your files in a format your DVD player can recognise ie MPEG1 or AVI.

Finally, once you've copied videos in a format your dvd plays, make sure you "Finalize" the disk.
This means that you can't copy any more data, but it makes the disk readable on other players.

Can't play mp4?


You could try a piece of software called mp4cam2avi. It turns a .mp4 file into an xvid/divx .avi file, without actually needing to recode the data, so the quality is just the same!

(If you enjoyed this solution and want to do me a favour - can you confirm if your Nikkai A99HR device works okay with external hard-drives? :)
