From Samsung official website, we know that MP4 is really one of Samsung TV compatible video formats. If so, why we still encounter the issue "Samsung TV won't play MP4"? Here are some possible reasons about Samsung TV MP4 playback problems below.

1. Copywritten Video

If your MP4 file is a copywritten video, it won't play without a proper license.

2. Video Stored in USB device

If your MP4 video files stored in a USB device that does not support high speed data transmission may not play smoothly on Samsung TV.

3. Bitrate or Frame Rate is Too High

Your MP4 video may not work if its bitrate or frame rate is higher than the standard value of Samsung TV.

The most common reason is the incompatible codec issue. Samsung TV can only recognize MP4 file with H.264/MPEG-4 AVC video codec and AAC audio codec. If your MP4 file is not compressed in this way, it can't be opened or played smoothly with your Samsung TV. In this case, you have to transcode MP4 to the compatible codec certificated by Samsung TV as above.
