Playing Video/Movies From PC - Required File Formats
« on: June 01, 2014, 04:39:58 PM »
Hi all,

I am fairly new to this, but what are the required file format(s) for any movies on my PC in order to play them on the Humax?
Also can anyone recommend any software for converting them?

Thanks!

I've yet to find a format that the humax consistently plays.  Avis play OK up to about 1.2gb then need copying to the humax drive. Mp4s usually work. Mkv rarely works. Vob works OK. But none are consistent.  Mp4 is the most consistent

I use Freemake Video Converter. It also has basic cut and join capability.
