These are the actual file name extensions the player can read. For example, the player will see and display a file called ''abc.jpg'', but if you rename it to ''jpg.abc'' it will become invisible to the player and you will not be able to display it. ".abc" is not a supported file name extension.

".abc" is not a supported file name extension. It is important to note that many of these filetypes are ''container'' formats, which means that they can contain a variety of codecs, not all of which are supported.

== Large file sizes (above 4Gb)? ==
 +
Are there any plans, such as via a firmware upgrade, to support a filesystem (such as NTFS, or UFS, or EXT2 -- anything) in your USB-readers, that would allow files larger than 4Gb? Some of our HD travel videos are very big and I'm loath cut them. This is also the single [http://www.amazon.com/review/R3BSITJ6ABCWJV/zhopa negative point] among Amazon's reviews of your players...
 +
 +
It is my understanding, that your players run some sort of Unix inside (Linux? BSD?), so it ''should'' already be possible to use something better than [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FAT32#FAT32 FAT] on the USB-media. Can you, please, confirm this?
 +
 +
----
 +
 +
Player uses a mini-OS shell for higher functions which are proprietary to our own operation. Player does not have a full OS required for emulation of Unix functions such as NTFS formatting. This is a limitation of the design of the player and can't be adjusted through a future firmware release.
 +
 +
The way around this limitation is to use DLNA streaming. Your host device is responsible for filesystem compatibility - Nathaniel Plain
 +
 +
: Of course, formatting and ''writing'' NTFS is not easy, but simply ''reading'' an already existing NTFS can not be very hard...
 +
:What DLNA-servers have you tested against? I already have [http://mediatomb.cc MediaTomb] configured (used to stream to an Archos-5 player as well as to a Windows computer), but my Sony Bravia TV, for example, refuses to work with it... Will your devices fare any better?
 +
:Thanks for the quick response. ''Mikhail''
