This article is going to answer the questions about how to play MOV videos on Philips TV through USB port.

You can enjoy video, audio and image files on your Philips TV from USB or DLNA devices. However, when you try to play some QuickTime MOV format movies on Philips TV, you may find that some QT MOV files work just fine and some just don't seem to be playable on the Philips TV with an unhelpful audio codec error message displaying right on your screen. Does the Philips TV support QT MOV in USB format? Which format is the best Philips TV USB port format? Please read on.

Technically, MOV is a complex video container including different video encodings, only those MOV videos with encodings and resolution matching with the default encodings and resolution of Philips TV can be played. If the Philips TV does not recognize the codec, even if it is a supported format, you'll fail to play MOV. So if your MOV file does not support audio or video codecs certainly can not play smoothly on Philips TV.

Luckily, there is an easy way to get of the incompatibility issues quickly. All you have to do is convert the MOV videos to a fully compatible format with Philips TV with a third-party tool. Once yo have, you can enjoy the QuickTime MOV files from a USB drive connected to the USB input on the TV or use the DLNA feature to access media files over your home network from other DLNA enabled devices, such as a PC or PlayStation system.
