MP4 files wont work on Sony TV

Post by hankgerbil »

Description of problem or question:

Converting DVDs to MP4 files to play in my Sony TV. They play fine on PC, but will not be seen by my TV when copied to a USB stick.
However they appear to have the same codec information as other mp4 files that do work on my TV that were converted with a different software.
Any help please.
thank you

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Windows 10

Try changing the file extension from m4v to mp4.
