  Playing MP4 video on Toshiba TV off a USB stick

This article covers troubleshooting problems when watching MP4 movies on Toshiba TV as well as the fast solution.

Why Toshiba TV refuses to play an MP4 video

From its official website we know that Toshiba TV support MP4 format, but MP4 is a media container format which can be encoded with many different codecs, like divx, xvid, h265, h264, h263, avc, mpeg-4, etc. And Toshiba TV is only compatible with MP4 in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video codec and AAC audio codec (For Toshiba 4K TV is H.265/HEVC codec). In other words, if you transfer MP4 with unsupported audio or video codec (i.e. vp80 codec) to Toshiba TV through USB or wifi, you will fail to play MP4 on Toshiba TV. For windows users, please turn to Dimo Video Converter Ultimate. Besides, bitrate and resolution all also decide the compatibility of the MP4 video on Toshiba TV.

Solutions to get all of MP4 files to play on Toshiba TV nicely

1. Check if the TV has an software update for MP4 support.

While I was buying TV this year in August I found that many TVs in their main menu had an option for software update. It may add the file support like MP4 for native playback.

2. If your Toshiba TV has support for MP4 file format, make sure the MP4 is fully compatible with your Toshiba TV including video codec, audio codec, bitrate, etc. etc., otherwise you´d better convert MP4 to the most compatible format for Toshiba TV, so that you can avoid the video playback issues.
