Another way to play MP4 files on your DVD player is to convert the MP4 to DVD and play the DVD on your DVD player. You can try Leawo DVD Creator to burn MP4 to a DVD to play on the DVD player.

in your owners manual it should list the codecs that are compatible ( eg. avi mp4 ect ) try to make sure those are the ones that you play . also check there website to see if they offer any updates for the system itself . Sometimes they do , and it's just a matter of downloading them onto your usb drive and installing them into the unit . They will give you instruction on there website if this is an option . Oh and make sure you know the model number of the unit before you go to the site to make things easier for yourself

SOURCE: I have the Sylvania SDVD1030,

A codec works like a video compressor as well as a video interpreter. It takes the file and un-compresses it to what the player needs as well as how to generate the picture. Unfortunately there are literally hundreds of them. So normally you get a problem where a video was generated or saved using a different codec. The other part to this which is your problem is that you can use different codecs to create the same file and then you can change options on each of these. So you can find two seemingly identical videos and one will play while the other won't. On a computer you just load a codec software suite which installs hundreds of codecs. Unfortunately on a player like this you can;t load the, You are stuck with what it came with.

Having said or typed all that I ran across quite a few complaints about this player not being able to play mp4 or mpegs unless they are on a dvd disk. It will not read them from the usb. I would guess that the usb interface is not capable of the larger data rate a mp4 requires. So you may find if you burned the mp4 to a disk they would play but you won't be able to play them off of the usb.

I'd suggest either burning them to a dvd or trying a different file type like a AVI You can find most movies in avi format or you could use a commercial dvd versions which should play fine. So basically I don;t think you will get those movies or any mp4's to play off of the usb stick. You either need dvd versions or you will have to leave it behind. I'd try to find some dvds as that flight is a real killer as far as boredom goes. wish I a fix or work around for you but there isn't one.

I'm going to be late to this party obviouisly but hopefully someone else will be able to benefit from my diligent research.

You need to have the usb device formated as FAT32 and the videos will only work if reformated using
WinX Free AVI to MPEG Converter
It is freeware but watch carefully to dodge any toolbars it may install.

You have to make the DVD format yourself. A decoder program or some programs to burn DVD's have this.
Look on a DVD what map structure it has and what files it contains. No MP4

My dvd player will nbotr play my sd card on screen


A codec is a digitized set of instructions inside the computer that allows the TV or player to decipher the signal coming in, if you don't have that codec you can't play the SD. Sorry you are out of luck here.

Power Acoustik Car DVD Player 103 Touchscreen PD103B will not play mp4 movie


MP4 is a codec that is not compatible with this DVD player. Your DVD player will play store bought DVDs just fine. Please read the specifications in the owners manual to see what codecs are compatible with your player.

I need a codec code to play a video off my sd card for a sylvania sdvd704ob portable dvd player


Codecs are for computers. If your DVD is one of those stand-alone DVD players or those you you connect to a TV, there is no way to load it a codec.

There are different codecs for different type of video files and installerd dedepend of operating system of your device.

just for your informatiom, a very cood codec pack is the one offered by L-Lite for Windows

Download Lite Codec Pack

If you decide download it for your computer, be careful WHAT you download., press where it says download... in small letters. Keep away from big DOWNLOAD displays, they are adware and potentially unconvenient programs

How to set the usb port on supersonic sc25 all region dvd player to play mp4 and mkv files


Check the user manual (find one online if you don't have the printed version). It will list the file types that the player can decode and play. If it does not specifically list mp4 or mkv files, you're out of luck. There's no way to add codecs to most DVD players.

What files do a hitachi L32HK04U L support as it wont play my file from my usb stick


This tv will not play , wmv, avi, mov, mkv, or divx, the hitachi uses the xvid codec only, which means your video file types must be mp4, and not the h.264 mp4 either....but true mp4 video, if you have a connected usb drive full of movies, best bet is to download "youtube downloader" (free off the internet) install it to your PC, and use the convert feature to convert your movies to the ipad video mp4 setting, with the "same as original " quality ticked....and convert all your movie files to the xvid codec your tv wants, youtube downloader can convert anything, any filetype even flash. trust me this works 100% i know, i have the Tv, and i do know about codecs and scaling..and metadata....do this will be your best bet guys !!! happy viewing

Does sinotec dvd player 8150 play mp4


Will DVD Players play MP4 files?

As we know, most old DVD players only support DVD video on DVD disc, they cannot play any video file not to mention MP4 file. Later, some DVD players can play video files on DVD disc. Even later, many DVD players come with USB ports, users can attach USB drive to it, and it can search and play video files on it. However, the video formats they support are very limited. Because DVD video is some kind of MPEG-2 video, this format is supported by nearly all DVD players. MP4 is newer than AVI format, some players doesn't support MP4 but support AVI. Hence, to play MP4 on DVD Players, we suggest you convert MP4 file to DVD-Players-sensible formats like the MPEG or AVI format.

To solve this issue, read this guide: http://www.faasoft.com/articles/can-dvd-players-play-mp4.html
