its the file system...needs to be fat32
I have a mkv movie that I was trying to play on my samsung un55b8000 tv. I have the TV networked and use the samsung pc share software to share my movies. Well when I tried to play the mkv file on my TV I get video but an audio error pops up that say's the audio format is not supported. So I wanted to test the file from a thumb drive. I have had things that do not work over my network from my pc work from a thumb drive so I figured I'd try it. Well the problem came when I tried to move the 11gig file to my 15 gig flash drive It would tell me that the file was to big. I realized that the flash drive is formated as fat32 so I formated to ntfs and was able to move the file to the thumb drive. However with it formated as ntfs my TV would not see any files on the flash drive. Does it have to do with the file syste Or can it not see a mkv file like that?
On a side note I have figured out a way to convert the audio in that mkv file so I can use it. Seems to work although I have not tested the whole movie yet. But I still would like to be able to play it from my flash drive since that will allow me to fast forward and rewind. With using the dlna it's 50/50 at best if that works correctly.
Thanks in advance.
