Movies and dvd player question

Recommended Posts

I have an old pc which has a few usb ports i am not using. If I buy a usb flash drive which has a sd reader/writer on it such as this:

would I be able to use software that will convert mp4 movies to some format which will enable me to store it on the SD card? I want to use an SD card on a portable dvd player
to view current movies as well as some old dvd's i have. As far as I know, I cant view any movie on a usb flash drive andit will actually work on the dvd player. Hope this makes sense.

If the DVD player can actually read SD memory cards, that is very likely possible. However, I have not yet seen a DVD player that accepts memory cards. 

 

Blu-ray players can usually play more formats, but you can also be lucky with a DVD player. There are many Blu-ray players that can play files from a connected USB stick without any problems.


The MP4 format or the MKV format could work, for example.

 

A very good program to convert video files is HandBrake.

StaxRip is also very good.

Or you can try DVDFab. (Search nsane)

Not sure if your DVD player can support card readers.. It can be a hit and miss.. Also you have to format media in FAt32 meaning max size for files is 4GB..

 

Reencoding movies will take a long time on an old PC (depending on the hardware specs).... Also old PCS might  not even be able to play or reecode the new Hi10, HEVC or H264 files..
