    Hi, I'm trying to rip DVD's onto my computer and then copy them to a USB flash drive and play them on my tv. Now I'm not a total tech savvy person but I know how to do stuff. I tried a lot of combinations but the TV will not even read the file. I've played lots of other files on my TV with the USB but I know it doesn't read MKV files…..can you please help? 🙂

    Had to download the specific version 1.0 of handbrake that they were using for this to work.
