LG Blu-ray Player Supported Video Audio Formats
Why my LG Blu-ray player BPM36 won’t play .mkv files from USB port? These movies are The Hobbit, and they are all in 4K resolution.
My Blu-ray player is a LG UBK90. I’m using a WD 2TB USB External Hard Drive that connects to the USB port to play .mp4 and .mkv files. But the machine can’t read the video file. Does it really support so many formats?
If you want to play 4K Blu-ray discs on Smart TV, 4K Blu-ray player is essential. 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc provides the ultimate in audio/video quality with a stunning 4K picture and state-of-the-art audio. LG’s UBK90 is a basic, no-frills Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Unlike earlier offerings in this category, though, the UBK90 adds support for Dolby Vision encoded content found on both Ultra HD Blu-ray discs and from streaming services. It greatly improves people’s viewing experience.
The player supports popular disc-based formats such as Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, CD and DVD. For those with media on an external hard drive, the UBK90 also supports a wide variety of file-based video formats, including MPEG2, and H264, video in commonly used containers such as MKV and MP4. So we can use the USB interface of LG’s Blu-ray player to play downloaded and backup movies. As LG’s latest and most powerful Blu ray player, UBK90 still has the problem of format incompatibility, especially for the early Blu-ray players. I will list the video and audio formats supported by LG’s popular 4K Ultra-HD Blu-ray Disc Blu-ray players and regular Blu-ray disc players, including UBK90, BMP36, BMP26, UBK80, BP350, UBKM9, BP175, BPM35, BPM25.

Actually, a video format is a file container that could contain a variety of video and audio compression formats. If your videos have been encoded with Header Stripping or it’s using a higher profile than the player can deal with; or it’s been encoded with more Ref Frames than the player can handle; etc. Probably, the LG Blu-ray Player won’t play these 4K, MP4, MOV, MKV files.
