Nowwadays it is convenient to put movies on USB flash drive and play them on your TV via USB port. However, many Panasonic TV users have video playback problems when they tried to play common video formats like MP4 on Panasonic TV like this:
"Does anyone know what should be done for this particular TV brand (Panasonic Viera) to play mp4 files correctly? What happens is that the TV can't either read the file or when it does the images are kind of distorted with poor audio."
As far as we know, codec support is likely to be limited to whatever Panasonic decided to support in their TV. Unfortunately the video's you play on the TV will need to be formatted in such a way that they are encoded using codecs supported by the TV. And an MP4 is a container format which can hold various video and audio codecs. If your Panasonic TV can't either read the MP4 file or when it does the images are kind of distorted with poor audio, you may get some MP4 videos encoded beyond Panasonic TV's support. This is the main reason why you got into trouble to play MP4 in Panasonic TV.
