Won't play specified files.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony BDPS5200 3D Blu-ray Disc Player with Wi-Fi (2014 Model) (Electronics)
Got this when expected, and hooking everything up was a breeze. I have a network media location to play files from, and a external hard drive to use as well. The .mp4 extension is supported both places per the compatibility list from Sony. Most of my .mp4 files played as they should, but two of them wouldn't play at all saying the file was corrupted, or wrong format. Unfortunately these are my daughters two favorite movies to watch. I know the file is not corrupted as I can play them over the WD play that I'm trying to replace. I bought this as an all in one replacement to play blu-rays, and be my network media player. I don't know what the problem is yet, but hoping I'll find out, and can update this to a 5 star rating instead of being a 3 right now. If I find out anything else I'll post updates. Also I did do a software update hoping that would fix it, but still no luck. If I can't seem to figure it out I will be returning this, and trying a different player.

you could try converting the wrapper to MKV format (format factory is a free program). or re-encode using handbrake, but this will lose quality. good luck.

Your problem is most likely that the source of the files was protected with Cinavia, an audio watermark that CAN'T be stripped from the source, even in conversion. All BD players these days are supposed to support Cinavia copy protection to prevent you from playing these files.
