I have a BDP-S590/BX59 player but it will not play video Xvid.avi file format.

Why can't I play Xvid.avi files on the Bluray player

Hello Jazz,

Welcome to the Sony Community Forums.

The BDP-S590 and BDP-BX59 Both can play .avi files.

AVI, MKV, MP4 files are all just containers. that have a video codex and an audio codex bundled together, this is why  some of your videos sometimes have sound and no picture, and vice versa. this is what it means when it says a part of the file may not playback in the following guide.

 

Supported File Formats for DLNA® and USB Compatible Blu-ray Disc™ Players and Network Media Players

 

Likely you have a PC  in the mix that hosts your DLNA server.   this is where transcoding comes in.  some  DLNA servers will transcode the file (avi, mkv etc) into one of the above formats. If your avi files wont play  one of the codex  embeded in the file is preventing playback.

Re: I have a BDP-S590/BX59 player but it will not play video Xvid.avi file format.

I purchased this S590 just 2 weeks ago, and it already came with the latest firmware.

 

Only one issue, if I try to rw or ff an MKV video from the USB HDD it just goes to the next video or just stops playing altogether.

 

I'm using a 500GB HDD NTFS.

 

Anyone else having this issue?

 

I'm pretty sure I have the latest firmware, checked it against the site last night just to make sure.

 

My brother has a Samsung BDP and I tried the same video files in his player, everything worked just fine.

 

Sony, you know all you need to do to fix the mkv

issue is release a new, working, firmware update, you have the developers and the resources. Are you going to get customers mad by not attending to their needs?
