How to Convert Video to TV Format?

Nowadays, you can play videos on a TV via USB. But sometimes, the video format is not supported by your TV, and you must change the video format first. In this post, we can help you easily convert videos to TV format so you can continue watching them on your TV without error. Please read on.

What Format of Video Does TV Support?

Before anything else, you probably want to know what video format is supported by your TV. In general, the MP4 format is compatible with most TVs. But you may have met some MP4s not playing on TV due to the wrong video/audio codecs. Since the majority of Smart TVs support H.264/AAC codecs, you are most likely to play your video files on TV if you encode your video in MP4 H.264/AAC.

However, keep in mind that this format isn’t fit for all TVs. You should look up specific video formats in your TV manual or on the TV website. Once you got the supported format, you can use a video converter to convert the video to that format to play on TV.
