Play Wedding Videos on Smart TV

Have recorded some great and memorable moment on your daughter's wedding party and wish to re-watch them on your Samsung/Sony/Panasonic/LG Smart TV. The following article will show you how to transfer and play wedding videos on smart tv with different solutions.

Solution 1: Play wedding videos on Smart TV from USB port
Solution 2: Stream Wedding videos to Smart TV via Plex

Solution 1: Play wedding videos on Smart TV from USB port

If your television set has a USB port and your TV does support video playback from USB, then you may be able to use it to watch wedding videos that you have copied from your computer. The main factor that affects your ability to watch the wedding video is the file format. You will need to consult the user manual or promotional material for the particular set to see which formats it supports. Your Smart TV may only play video in very limited file formats, in addition, some sets will only play a supported video at a specific resolution or within a particular range of resolutions.

The wedding video captured by your smartphone, camera, camcorder or other devices can be in different compression codec or file resolution. What's more, you may fail to find the detailed information about what file formats can be viewed on Smart TV. To fix all those head-scratching issues, you can download Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate (review), which has full support for all media types, you can comprehensively load wedding videos in Blu-ray/DVD disc, digital video in virtually any file formats with the resolution of 4K/2K/HD/SD. The biggest merits of this program is that it allows you to directly output Sony/Samsung/LG/Panasonic Smart TV preset profile formats with the optimal playback settings so that even if you don't know what file formats can be viewed on your Smart TV, you can still use our program to produce the best playback results if you happen to own a Samsung/Sony/LG/Panasonic TV.

Solution 2: Stream Wedding videos to Smart TV via Plex

If you are fortunately to own a TV that are included in Plex supported Smart TV television models listed below, you will then be able to stream and view the wedding videos on your large screen TV with Plex's beautifully organized interface.


Plex app is available on LG television models running the following software:
NetCast (2013 models)
webOS Lite
webOS 1.0
webOS 2.0
webOS 3.0


The app is available on 2016 and newer model year Samsung sets that are Tizen-based. The exception is for users located in Brazil, China, or Iran; the app is not currently available for users in those countries.


The app is available through the Opera TV Store for many 2013 and newer Sony Bravia models. (Note that the Opera forum list does include models older than 2013, which are not supported by the Plex for Smart TVs app.)


The app is made available through the Smart TV Alliance for Toshiba televisions. You can find the list of supported Toshiba models on the Smart TV Alliance website.

VIZIO Televisions

Supported Models
Most 2013 to 2016 model VIZIO televisions are supported. You can determine whether a model is compatible:
- If the app store is named Vizio Internet Apps Plus, then the model is compatible
- If the app store is named anything else (including just "Vizio Internet Apps"), then the model does not currently support the Plex App

To directly play wedding video on Smart TV via Plex, the wedding video must be 100% compatible with your Smart TV. If not, Plex will try to transcode the file for you. However, as the file transcoding process is very CPU intensive, if your computer is serveral years old, it may simply not be powerful enough to perform the transcoding, then you will suffer video buffering issues during the streaming process. In addition, the transcoding process uses temporary disk storage for the converted media. By default, the temporary files are stored on the OS boot disk. This can cause problems if your boot drive is very small.

To have a smooth streaming process with Plex Media Server, it would be much ideal for you to use a our powerful video media conversion app - Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate listed above to convert unsupported video to Smart TV supported file formats or specially optimized file formats for viewing.
