Not trying to hijack this thread . . but was looking for an answer to this same question . . I'm not a techie . . can you help?
My Aunt doesn't have cable - so she couldn't watch the Dem Debate. I managed to download a video from youtube - I then tried to convert it to a DVD (from mp4 format), but that didn't play on her dvd player.
She has a Samsung TV (model: UN32J5003AFXZA); which has a USB port. The manual suggests that she could play the mp4 (or other format?) from a USB drive.
Can't seem to insert image of supported video format from TV manual - cut/paste just jumbles all the info. . so here's a link to the TV manual: http/www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/UN32J5003AFXZA
So . . if I send her a USB drive with just the video on it - will she be able to 'plug n play' (sort of). YES - I realize this sounds like a 'silly' question . . but since the DVD didn't work - just want to be sure. Will the mp4 work or is there a better format?
Thanks in advance!!
