    No wonder. The new .mkv file is a conflict in itself: Tweaking the level to 4.1 but leaving the framerate at 50fps. The maximum framerate for level 4.1 is 30fps for 1920x1080 resolution.
    One can usually not make wine from vinegar (or vice versa) by just exchanging the label of the bottle. One can always try, of course

    The newer tvs can play 1920x1080 at 50/60 fps as i mentioned but the older one are limited to 30fps.

    Ok, so I read somewhere that changing fps for the video would affect the audio sync.
    Is that true?

    It depends on how you do it. The method I gave earlier does not cause audio sync problems.

    That's true, if you change not only the fps, but the video length too. But if you change your fps from 60 to 30, then every second frame is dropped and the length/duration remains the same.

    Perfect!

    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    And note that the sample you posted has 50 frames per second but every pair of frames is identical. So you're not losing any motion smoothness by reducing the frame rate to 25 fps. If it had been live sports (which truly has 50 different frames every second) you would noticed a drop in smoothness after converting to 25 fps.

    Great!
    Thank you for all the help

    see if these play
    Oh!
    I just saw your reply! Sorry

    Both videos worked, they contain no audio file though, right?

  10. I have the exact same problem with a Panasonic TV. The media players in these things are not very advanced and very specific. When I hit a file that won't play, I use VLC to convert it. Tedious and lengthy process but it works. The VLC profile H.264 +mp3(mp4) is basic enough to play on anything in my experience.

  12. I've advanced a lot since I started this thread. The best so far is to download a copy of Handbrake from this site and convert any videos that can't be played by your standard dumb-normal TV media player. Handbrake has lots of presets but it seems to me thaat anything MP4 or MKV in an X.264 container will work. Also, it's a good idea to convert the audio to stereo.

  14. And Handbrake is way faster and much more powerful than VLC.
