Q: Can I play 4K H.265 .mp4 moives on Sony 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Player (UBP-X700)? I downloaded 46.5 GB movies from the movie website and copied them to my new USB flash drive, but UBP-X700 won't play MP4 files. I used Google to find a solution, but it didn't work. Hope to get a solution soon. Now we have to watch the old discs. Is going through a bit of a phase. Damn 2019-nCoV.
A: To be able to directly play HEVC video on a Sony Blu-ray player through USB drive, you need to match two things:
1) Firstly, your Sony Blu-ray player must have native support for HEVC H.265 codec, if not, you have to use a third party media player app;
2) Secondly, even if your Sony Blu-ray player has native support for x265, it must have limits on video specifications. For example, if your Sony Blu-ray player only supports H.265 video in MKV container, then you shouldn't play a H.265 file in an MP4 wrapper; if it doesn't support high bitrate H.265 video, but you try to play such a file, of course, it will fail to play. All the similar things will make your TV watching very painful.
Can Sony Blu-ray players play movies from USB?
In the past, Blu-ray players were essential entertainment equipment for every home. It's interesting to enjoy Hollywood classic movies with our family. With the development of science and technology, the functions of electronic equipment are becoming more and more powerful. Blu-ray/DVD player isn't the only way to enjoy our favorite movies on TV. We can watch movies from my phone on my Smart TV. If you already have your media files on a USB drive, you can simply plug it into a smart TV. DLNA makes it easier to stream and transfer your favorite music, films, and pictures between your DLNA-supported devices - including TVs, PCs, portable servers, and gaming consoles. A modern smart TV has multiple USB ports and can detect and autoplay the media files on the USB drive when plugged in. Of course, we can enjoy any hot movies with Netflix too. Today I'll show you how to play MP4, MKV and AVI movies on Sony Blu-ray player. The premise is that your Sony Blu-ray Player has a USB interface.

It's easier than ever to enjoy videos and music stored on USB drives or your home network, without having to worry about video or music formats. That's because Sony latest Blu-ray Disc players support 26% more combinations of video, container, and audio codecs than previous models, including new .mkv files and High-Resolution Audio. Unfortunately, we still can't play the download H.265/HEVC and some common video formats with Sony Blu-ray Player.
HEVC is a video compression standard, designed as a successor to the widely used Advanced Video Coding. In comparison to AVC, HEVC offers from 25% to 50% better data compression at the same level of video quality, or substantially improved video quality at the same bit rate. H. 265 is more advanced than H. 264 in several ways. HEVC is supported on
the latest devices, such as Galaxy S20, iPhone 11, OnePlus 8, Google Pixel 4, etc. Many 4K videos use H.265/HEVC encoding now. But Sony Blu-ray Players can't handle the popular video codec so far. So Sony Blu-ray Player won't read H.265 MKV, H.265 MP4 files. To play all video formats on Sony Blu-ray Player, a best way is to transcode your video to Sony Blu-ray Player supported video and audio formats.
