MP4 encoding is not a standard.

Try other encodings. Also, try USB if this supports it so you can try other encodings. I like Handbrake since usually one of the stock profiles works.

Remember this is an ongoing complaint about Smart TVs and players. While makers may document encoding support they stop short of supplying an encoding software or telling us how to encode.

But it does work...for a while.

The DVD plays great hires video and music except it is for only a few minutes or intermittent but it is reading the file. Still do not know if I have a recording problem or a player problem. It would seem if the format is not compatible, it would not play at I correct in that assumption?

I noted what I would do next. There are folk that will not re-encode and may ask what's wrong. Here it's been encoding issues over and over.

And sorry no. I wish it was that black and white.
