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.

SOURCE: ive formatted my 8gb flashdrive

AVI is just a format - the video inside it can be coded using just about every codec. That sharp supports files that are coded using DIVX 4 to 6 and XVID 0.8 to 1.3. You must make sure that the avi files were coded correctly. For that install this program and use it to check the files

Can I watch a film on a USB stick from the service USB port?

Yes, if your tv has the appropriate software built in to play the video files on your stick. It has been my experience that many tv's lack the proper codecs for playing some files. Your blue ray dvd's with the usb input usually play lots more of the files.

How to view videos on your usb in the Polaroid P32led 12 Television.

I related my earlier finding on how to put a film onto your usb to work in the Polaroid P32led 12 Television. I found that it was a VOB file?  I have now again fiddled about and found that if you install this program into your Pc:- BIGASOFT MP4 CONVERTER V. or newer version, then setting the output format to:- VCD VIDEO (*.mpg)____Video Size:- 352 * 288cif____Video Quality:- Higher___Audio Quality:-Higher.     You then find the film for converting and copy/insert into program, then convert to desktop or folder you have made on the desktop.    This is very quick with this program. When finish and on desktop, put your usb into the computer then bring up the usb folder.   You then copy his film by left click on the film/desktop then right click with mouse then copy then take pointer over to usb folder, left click then right click in usb folder, then paste the film into it. when copied, take out usb and try in tv, should have video and sound.  just do the same again for any other films.

Invalid or unsupported file

Check the TV manual for which movie file format will run from the USB port on the TV.
You may need to convert your movies to a file format the TV uses.

Eh5000 wont play movies on usb stick

The TV can only play a specific format of video. You may be using MP4 files while the TV can only view 3GP or FLV formats; just try downloading a converter (I've used FLV Converter on Windows XP for years, works fine and very simple) and changing the file format.

If you were to find a film that works then look at the format of it on your PC. Converting the films that don't work to the same format should do it.
