To watch a movie from a USB flash drive follow the steps below.

 
1. Connect the flash drive to the USB port of the TV. 
2. Press the MENU button on the supplied remote. Press the UP or DOWN arrow button to go to Video, then press the select or enter button. The file or folder list will appear.
3. Press any of 4 arrow buttons to select a file or folder, then press the select or enter button. When you select a folder, select a file then press the select or enter button. Playback will start. 
 
MPEG1 and MPEG2 (files with the extension ".mpg") are the supported video file formats for USB playback. For more information about playback of files via USB please refer to page 29 of the  operating instructions

Yes, you have to convert the mp4 file/s to MPEG1 or MPEG2. Playback of converted files is not guaranteed to work, I would suggest that you get a file that is originally encrypted in MPEG1 or MPEG2 file format.

I have used my USB to watch movies on a samsung tv and now trying on a Sony Bravia. I get to the screen that shows the titles but when I click on one it says: There are no items to display. Can you help with the reason or if I am doing something wrong?

Hi lolalajos,

 

 

 

Welcome to the Sony Community! 

 

 

Files from a USB device need to be compatible with the following file formats.

  • - Still images: JPEG format or RAW format (preview only)
  • - Music: MP3 format
  • - Video: AVCHD, MP4 (AVC) or MPEG1 format (not playable in some cases)

 

For further assistance  we kindly recommend visiting our Sony Global Web site for information on contacting the Sony Support Center in your region at http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/Support/. Due to proximity, they are in a better position to respond to your questions or concerns.
