The video files on my usb doesnt play in my pensonic tv


As far as we know, codec support is likely to be limited to whatever Panasonic decided to support in their TV. Unfortunately the video's you play on the TV will need to be formatted in such a way that they are encoded using codecs supported by the TV. Panasonic may have the list of supported codecs in the manual of the TV hopefully otherwise you would need to ask them or play the game of encode and test until you find something that works.

If your Panasonic TV can't either read some video file like MP4, MKV, MOV etc or when it does the images are kind of distorted with poor audio, you may get some videos encoded beyond Panasonic TV's support. Something even worse, you will not be able to install codecs onto a TV like you would a PC unfortunately. An ultimate solution to get unsupported format detected by your Panasonic TV is to convert unsupported videos to a Panasonic TV more friendly format with Pavtube Video Converter

Unsupported video format


You would have to convert the files to a DVD / BR disc with converter and then burn as a DVD or BR.
Media files are managed by CODECS. Basically code / decode. This means your PC will manage more types of files than a player which will only do a few types if any at all. If fact the CODECS are constantly being updated. Players aren't. gl

Can't play avi videos usb


Hello to all. Have twin boys staying over the holidays and they wished to view movies when they went to bed. have Polaroid 32" P32LED12 fitted to their bedroom. The tv is ok for playing dvd through it but when on using the usb drive with movies on it, it came up Invalid or Unsupported file. Have tried different movies with different formats and came up with nothing to play. So got myseld a video converter program: Wondershare video converter ultimate. On looking at the booklet from Polaroid, it says MPEG1.2, but although on converting the film to this format, the film broke up. So I took an AVI trailer and converted the trailer to all the formats on the converter and stuck this on the USB and stuck it into the tv. Out of all of them, i found that the converter format was VOB DVD FORMAT in this coverter. The film did not break up and the sound great. The film sizie was a bit smaller in frame size but this can be increased. What the converter showed after the conversion was: DVD-Video/ Format: VOB. Video Codec: MPEG-2/ Audio Codec: MPEG-2 audio. There is a settings on this converter at the lower right corner, but you can fiddle with this yourself. But to finish with, I have tried most of the films with different formats and could not get them to work on this tv, so get yourself a video program converter, put in laptop or pc and convert film to VOB. Hope this helps as there is nothing in any help on google for this tv.

Whenever I download things to it I can't play it because it says Unsupport format What can I do?


Unsupported format means the current audio or video codec does not meet the requirements of the downloaded file. What you need is to take note of the extension name of the file and try to google the extension name by which codec it supports.

example of extension name "FILE.bak"

The ".bak" is the extension name nad need to google it to which video or audio playback it supports

Video File UnSupported


For a video file to be played, the device you're playing it on must have the proper codecs for playback.

With computers you can add codecs as you need them; unfortunately, on consoles the codecs that are supplied are typically your only choices.

Here's a list of PS3 supported video formats.

Here's a list of Xbox 360 supported video formats. (Scroll to A10 under the More Information tab)
Here's a list of PSP supported video formats.

Fortunately, you can work around the supported format limitation by streaming your media to your console from your computer. Here's some streaming software:
PS3 Media Server (my personal favorite, also works on Xbox 360 despite it's name!) for PC
TVersity for PC
MediaLink for Mac


Hope this helped!

I have error code 80040265. What to do now?? Thank you for your help.


Cannot play back the file. The format is not supported. (Error=80040265)? Try installing the codec needed to play the unsupported file format. If you are using windows install codec "K-Lite Mega Codec Pack or K-Lite Codec Pack" Hope it helps.

Can not play vod file on computer oops , I meant VOB files on my DVD movie, no movie name stated, to make it harder.


I assume you mean VOB. I have not heard of a VOD file...

If you have gotten your hands on a VOB file somehow, chances are they have been copied/extracted from a DVD. VOB stands for DVD Video Object and is the core file of a DVD containing the actual movie data, an MPEG movie stream and the supported audio.
To play the VOB files, you need to have a DVD player that supports VOB format. However, if you have the Windows Media Player (version 12 or higher) or VLC Media Player, it is good enough to play the file. Note that you will see a prompt telling you that it is an unsupported format, don't worry about it and just play it anyways. It will play just fine.
If you want to obtain the VOB file from a DVD for some reason, just open the DVD in Windows Explorer instead of playing it through a media player. The VOB file would most likely be under the VIDEO_TS folder. Some other files that you will also see in the folder are IFO and BUP. The IFO files are the information files containing meta data about the DVD and instructions for the DVD player on how to handle the disc. The BUP file is simply a backup copy of IFO files.
If you want to convert VOB file to AVI or a similar format, aviNET is a great tool to do that

Movie Formats To Work With Xbox 360


As you may have heard, with the Xbox 360 Flash Fall 2006 System Update they are adding support for WMV video playback from new sources. Videos can be streamed from a PC running Windows Media Connect, Windows Media Player 11, or the new Zune client player, and can also be played from Optical Disc and most USB mass storage devices. For all these sources, only the WMV video file format and codecs are supported. How do I know if a video file will work on the Xbox 360? Currently only the Windows Media Video (WMV) file format and codecs are supported. If you have a file with a ?.wmv? extension, then the odds are pretty good that it will work. Technical details on the types of files we support can be found at the end of this post, but the easiest way to find out if a file will work or not is to just try it. Hopefully after you click play the video will show up on your display, but if the content is not supported you will simply get an ?Unplayable Content? message blade from the side of the screen and then be returned to the Video blade. How do I create videos that will play on my Xbox 360? Windows Movie Maker, a standard feature of Windows XPSP2, will output WMV video files compatible with the Xbox 360 console. Either use the default settings when you finish a movie and click ?Save to my computer,? or just make sure that the output video format you select shows the file type as ?Windows Media Video (WMV).? Videos will usually look best when they are closest to the original resolution that they were created with. Try to create video files at least 360 pixels high in vertical resolution in order to minimize content upscaling on the console. If you decide you want finer control of the output video file format, download a version of Windows Media Encoder (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/) and then start encoding away. Optimal size and bitrate settings will vary depending on the source material you are encoding. As a general guideline though, 1.5 Mbps is a typical bitrate that should be suitable for most standard definition content, and 8 Mbps is a common bitrate for high definition content. Can I get more technical details about the kinds of files you support? WMV video files with the extension ?.wmv? are stored in a generic file container format known as ASF. ASF files can contain many different types of codecs within them. Xbox 360 supports most common WMV video codecs, as seen in the following chart: Supported Video Codecs: Name FourCC Windows Media Video 7 WMV1 Windows Media Video 8 WMV2 Windows Media Video 9 WMV3 Windows Media Video 9 Advanced Profile WVC1 There are some files with ?.wmv? extension that may play on a PC, but are unsupported on the Xbox 360 console. Windows Media Screen, Windows Media 9 Image (Photostory), and some older Microsoft codecs are unsupported, as seen in the following chart: Unsupported Codecs: Name FourCC Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V3 MP43 Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V2 MP42 Microsoft MPEG-4 Video Codec V1 MP41 Windows Media Screen V9 MSS2 Windows Media Screen V7 MSS1 Windows Media Video 9 Image WMVP Windows Media Video 9 Image v2 WVP2 ISO MPEG-4 Video V1 MP4S Anamorphic content with nonsquare pixels is currently unsupported on Xbox 360 console, and will be displayed as if the pixels were square. If you want to play such content on your console, it is recommended that you re-encode the content in a square pixel format.
