Can AVI or MPG video files play on SONY Blu-Ray players

by HDTV_Lover / December 24, 2008 7:45 AM PST

I have couple of questions regarding SONY BDP-S350 Blu-Ray player.

1) Will the AVI or MPEG4 video files play on the player ?

2) The player also has a USB port for external flash memory. Can the above files play from the USB flash memory ?

Any help would be appreciated!

R. Proffitt,

Thanks for your response; that's what I figured. Even after upgrading the player to 2.0, it will not add that functionality ? any thoughts on how to play my rendered video files on my Samsung 650 with SONY blu-ray player ?

Thanks again!

What is "rendered?"

Let me share that my definition of rendered would be a Video DVD created by a software title like DVD FLICK (see google.)

I am not 100% sure, but...

I think you need to encode the video to the BD format which is AVCh264 and it can be in a dvd disc media. You could check Nero or corel to see which software can provide that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
