playing wmv files on UE46B7020WW

by colinbarrett0 / July 25, 2009 8:16 PM PDT

I have just created a wmv file and want to watch this on my tv through a usb stick. I have copied the file to the stick and placed it into a folder. When I go place the stick in the tv it chnages the folder into 4 files. When i go to play any of the files an error message appears that says this is not supported. I have a vista and windows media 11 on my pc.

Can you help?

I've had trouble playing WMV as well. I just assumed it wasn't on the list, now that I checked the manual it is on the list of supported file types.

But do the video codecs, audio codec and resolution match up? Those three items need to all match for the file to be able to play.
