How to watch micro SD video files on smart TV?
« on: February 16, 2023, 04:33:56 AM »
Got some micro SD cards full of video files that I took during my recent trip and trying to watch them on TV but when I insert the micro SD card on usb drive and insert on back of TV , nothing happens and doesn’t show up on input . When I plug in the drive on to my Blu-ray player that is hooked up to my TV and go to input , I see the micro SD video files there but they won’t play and shows error message that’s in the attachment or link below . I called Vizio TV support but they couldn’t help.  Pls help me here. I am  pretty new to these . The error message it shows is “ The defined resolution is not currently supported.
Resolution: (3840 × 2160 )”

i doubt it has to do with the card, but rather the format it was saved as

If you can somehow get the vids to play on your phone you can screenshare to your TV.

If you can get them to run on a laptop or PC you can use an HDMI cable to make the TV a 2nd screen
