I've got a few of the LG Divx supported BlueRay players that support USB drives. I never have any problems with them reading .avi files off my thumb drive but now I'm running into a problem with FAT32 4GB file size limit. I was wondering if anyone knows off hand if the players will read anything other than FAT32 partition tables? I hight doubt it will see ZFS, EXT2, EXT3, or EXT4 but looking for a solution for playing those larger files off a USB drive.
Thats true, and also one has to consider that the ISO9660 has file size limitations as well. Most DVD players that play .avi files in the root directory of the disc has to be in ISO9660 only, no other FS' can be included on the disc (Joliet/UDF), however UDF has of course higher file size limits than ISO9660.
Distribution: Ubuntu 11.4,DD-WRT micro plus ssh,lfs-6.6,Fedora 15,Fedora 16
because the standard for thumb drives is vfat (fat32) and the player's firmware probably doesn't support ntfs? note even DVD VOB files are limited to something like 1GB in size, often DVD videos span multiple VOB files. I would say it would be easier to split the file.
