    DVD Question


    Strange problem. Have 2 TV's with 2 different DVD players. Just got the DVD Movie MULAN 2020. Neither DVD player will play it. Both freeze, stutter, picture breaks up.
    Now the strange part. Plugged in a external DVD drive to my laptop. Movie played all the way with no problem. Any idea what the problem might be?

    Is it a OEM DVD movie, or a PC burned DVD?

    How much older are the DVD players than the laptop you are using?

    Hello @milford,

    - It sounds like it could possibly be a format problem where your TV's do NOT support the DVD file type.
    - Have you checked to see if there are any Firmware updates for the TV ?
    - If your TV's do NOT support the Region of the the DVD, there are ways around that by using Google.
    - If your TV's are Android, you could use the VLC Media Player App [ see below ].

    Hello @milford,

    If you had a Google Chromecast you could possibly cast from your computer or DVD player connected to your computer to the TV.

    Another option is to convert the DVD to a format that you know that your TV's can read and play. There are MANY FREE converters available.

    It may not be the reigon of the DVD, but the actual format the DVD was made in such as single or dual layer.

    Convert the DVD to a video file format that the TV recognisers - .mp4/.mkv / or being that old, may have to be .avi

    Video file converters - MakeMKV, Handbrake (if avi has to be, need to download an earlier version of Handbrake)

    You need to check the firmware of your Blu-ray players. Go to their manufacture website and read about how to do it. Since they are 10 years old you probably have to use a blank USB drive to write new firmware to the Blu-ray players. Read the manufacture's instructions carefully!

    What's happening is that the Blu-ray you bought is using a scheme your players can't use or are incapable of doing.
