Can Samsung TV Play MP4?

From Samsung official website, we clearly know that Samsung TV is only compatible with MP4 in H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video codec and AAC audio codec. However, MP4 is a container format which contains various kinds of video and audio codecs. Once the MP4 files can't meet the requirement of Samsung TV input format, you'll get into trouble to play MP4 in Samsung TV. We list some examples as follow for your reference:

  • I have a problem with only one of my mp4 movies. It plays in VLC, WMP, Plex app on RT and Android, but nothing but a black screen through the Plex app on my Samsung TV. I can also play it through the AllShare app on the set too. Not really a big deal as it's the only one doing this. Just curious if anyone knows why?
  • I want to watch films - in .mp4 format it shows me the films on the menu screen on the TV, but when I try to play it says unsupported file.
  • I just made some mp4 files with my phone. Put them on Stora and browsed to the folder with TWO TVs. A Samsung and an Aquos. The Aquos said, "Data not available". The Samsung doesn't show any files.
  • It's very weird but I have mp4 files that I can see and play on my smart TV. But some of the mp4 aren't even seen by my Samsung smart TV. However on my iPhone I see them no problem.
  • I tried playing some .MP4 files on my Samsung LE40B650 through Mezzmo, but unfortunately it says on my TV that the file type is not supported. One file I tried plays fine with an USB-Stick directly connected to the TV.
