If you can download some of your favorite movies from the Internet and store them in an USB portable device, then you can play the movies in your USB by connecting with your DVD players without spending additional costs on the DVD discs. Today, we are going to elaborate the specific steps on how to play music and movie on DVD player using USB.

Part 1: What Formats Can DVD Player Commonly Support

Actually, this is not a difficult issue to be solved because nowadays a lot of people have been immersed in digital multimedia resources, including transferring or copying. But if you have not grasped the overall knowledge about DVD players as well as the supported formats it is compatible with, you will probably encounter many unmatched problems. First of all, what you need to figure out is what formats can DVD commonly support? What formats can USB actually store? The formats supported by DVD include the following:

1. DVD (MPEG2) format. MPEG2 is more than four times more efficient than VCD’s MPEG1 320×240 resolution, and the amount of data is, of course, increased a lot. In addition, the sound quality is improved which has reached the standard of 24bit/96kHz and also supports subtitles and channels as well as digital control functions such as multi-angle viewing, the amount of data traffic broadcasted per unit time is greatly increased.

2. DVD-RAM format. DVD-RAM allows DVDs to be used as virtual hard disks for random access. Originally for a 2.6GB drive, the capacity can be increased to 4.7GB per side which can be rewritten 100,000 times.

3. AVI (MPEG4) format. AVI is short for Audio Video Interleaved, the audio and video interlaced format, which was launched by Microsoft in November 1992 as part of its Windows video software. AVI files contain audio (voice) and video (image) data in a single file container, allowing audio and video to be played back simultaneously. AVI files support multiple audio and video streams. AVI information is mainly used on multimedia CDs to store various video contents.

4. Audio format, such as MP3, WMV and CD. If you would like to play the music on DVD player using USB, you had a better download the music in MP3, WMV format which is much more compatible with it.

5. VCD (MPEG1) format. VCD is actually the abbreviation of Video Compact Disk, which is a compressed image format. It uses MPEG-1 compression method to compress images. The sound format uses 44.1KHz sampling frequency, 16 Bit sampling value, MPEG-1 layer 2, 224Kb/s Audio Bite Rate compression. With this compression method, even after being restored to a music CD format, even a trained professional auditor cannot distinguish the difference in sound quality from the original CD. That is to say, this compression method is a non-destructive compression.

6. RMVB format. RealMedia Variable Bit Rate (RMVB) is a variable bit rate (VBR) extension of the RealMedia Multimedia Digital Container format developed by RealNetworks. RMVB is typically applied to locally stored multimedia content relative to the more common Streaming Media RealMedia container encoded at a fixed bit rate (CBR). The extension to use this format file is ".rmvb".

The above six formats are the generally supported formats for the common DVD players, but that does not say that the DVD player you are using is compatible with the above formats. Therefore, before use, you had better check the DVD player instructions where has specified the supported formats.
