3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed..., 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony DVPSR760 Upscaling DVD Player (Electronics)
If I was just purchasing this as a DVD player, then it would be a 5 star review. If you buy this for its USB video play back you will be very disappointed. The overview for this product initially says "Free your digital movies and music: Dive into your movie and music libraries and enjoy old favourites on the big screen and surround sound with a USB connection. Plug in your laptop or transfer to a memory stick for fast access to your film library.". Unfortunately when you dig into the manual you will see this is limited to "Video: MPEG-1 (Cyber-shot data)/MPEG-4 (simple profile)/Xvid" and "720 (width) 576 (height)".

Non of my existing files will play ( including Xvid), so I would need to re-encode all my files to an inferior standard/lower bitrate. Hardly freeing my digital library...

Thank you for the helpful comments on the MP4 format. I want a player which will play my video camera's 1280x 720 MP4 output.
I could easily have bought this and been disappointed.

Thanks

Thanks also; was on the verge of buying and would indeed have been very disappointed. Furious, actually.
