sure i have seen something about this up here but cant seem to find it

have a new panasonic lcd with a SD card reader. when i plug the sd card into the tv  { sd card is from video camera } it plays what is recorded no worries.

my question is, can you copy movies onto the sd card from my laptop and watch them on the tv, i tried to just copy a a movie on to the sd card last night and try  but  the movie was not detected.




Anything I suggest or say is my own thoughts and not provided by anyone else unless stated

It depends on what codecs the TV has been endowed with, MPEG2 is common, but things like VidX and XVid are not, what is the model of telly?

As stated it all depends on what formats the tv can read. I cant find much info on that model but from previous experience id say AVCHD and MPEG2 are only supported. You would need to convert your movies to mpeg2 which would result in huge file sizes. Check what format your videos from your video cammera are for comparisson reasons. Im guessing they will be avchd files, but would be good if they were stock mp4's.
Google gspot for an application that will tell you what codecs your file is using. (beware for obvious dodgy sites lol)

For a paid for easy to use solution AVS Video Convertor

For a free program try  Super  Which is a good program, just not as simple to use as the likes of AVS.

I tried all that for ages and gave up. In the end I just plugged in an HDMI lead from my laptop to my Panasonic and ran the videos through that...much simplier if you can.

The net is full of posts of people trying to do what you are trying to do, most gave up....including me.
If only you could just paste movies onto an SD card and play them...great feature if it worked!
