My TV didn’t play FLV files through USB stick
“Hey, everyone, I have a number of video downloads in FLV format which I want to watch on my Sony 70″ HDTV through USB connection. I copied the files from my PC onto USB key, then plugged the USB into the TV and tried to play the FLV video directly. Unfortunately, my TV didn’t play FLV files at all. Does anyone know what should I do to go through this? I would really appreciate any help. Thanks in advance.”

To process format conversion, all you need is a good video converter app. Considering the ease of use and very good output quality, we would recommend HD Video Converter.
