Can someone help me please? I've downloaded videos to my USB (2.0) and tried to play on my new flat LED TV that supports almost any video formats (i've read that in the TV manual) but, to my dismay, it doesn't play. It says, "invalid file". Only the TSHD avi file which i downloaded plays. I then tried to convert the non-AVI files but doesn't play just the same. I can't figure out what's the problem in here...

I don't have any problem watching any video formats on my PC. I use both ALShow and VLC. The thing is, I want to view videos in wide screen. Maybe I'll buy HDMI cable instead of the USB. That's what I'm actually thinking but unsure if that too will work. Thanks for the tip, by the way @trugger.

not all file are support on lcd,plasma,led tv's
well the basic formats are supported like
but if resolution on the files are to high or not recognized by tv they wont playback
same with audio is to high not not recognized they wont playback and you will get
not supported or out of range message
just because tv is new doesn't mean it supports every resolution or audio formats
google your tv and model and see what video resolutions and audio ranges it supports
also you say you using USB but what device are you using a usb pen memory stick hard drive?
if pen or memory stick they may not be fast enough to handle the file
on average they use x1 speed to playback
but higher resolution movies need faster drives like a external usb hard drive for them to be playback

here are the supported file formats of my tv : mpg, mpeg, dat, ts, trp, tp, vod, mp4, mov, mkv, divx, avi, motion jpeg (avi, mp4, mkv), asf, mwv, flv.
resolution : under 1920x1080
frame rate : under 30fps (1920x1080), under 60fps (1280x720)
max bitrate of playable movie file : 20Mbps
bit rate of audio format within 32kbps to 320kbps (mp3)
supported subtitle format : *.smi, *.srt, *.sub (MicroDVD, SubViewer 1.0/2.0), *.ass, *.ssa, *txt (TMPlayer), *.psb (PowerDivX)
as i'm reviewing the manual of my tv, it seems to me that the USB i use (pen) cannot handle the required specs to play on tv... and the resolution too is inappropriate.
i'll try the hdmi first then decide for myself if i'll buy WD which, at the moment, is not my priority.
