USB Thumb Drive Issues on Smart TVs (Off Topic?)
on Jun 9, 2018 at 9:37:48 pm

Not sure this is the right place to post this issue but I don't know where else to post it....

I'm having issues with USB thumb drives not working on various smart TVs. The 4GB drives are formatted as FAT32 and have a 3.5GB MP4/ACC video of a dance recital on them. Every TV I plug one into says it's not a playable format or no file found, etc. However, when I load several random shorter and smaller size MP4 videos they play fine on most TVs.

So, my question is... is there a file size issue with smart TVs that could be causing this problem? The shorter MP4 videos are encoded the same way as the 2hr dance recital video and those play file and all show up on the TV in the menus. Do I need to break up this large file into smaller files for it to play nice on the TVs?

Most Smart TVs like FAT32, MP4 (H.264) and ACC audio. I've done a good bit a researching and have not found file size to be an issue playing on TVs. Only people discussing the 4GB FAT32 file size limit.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks!
