    Hi
    My GSZ-NS7 can only play some .avi video files on my USB pen drive, the ones it can't play i get the message "corrupted or unsupported file format". Any idea why this happens?
    Cheers

    AVI is just a container. It can contain a codec that Google TV hardware can not decode.

    oh bummer :eek: Is it possible to download any app (similar to VLC player) on the NSZ-GS7 which can play nearly every format?

    VLC style apps are not possible on Google TV due to lack of native code support.

    I had the same problem with other video files as well that gave me the same error. Just ctrl alt del to reset an try the file again. One of my Sony nsz-gs7 runs fine and the other seems to need a reset now and then to work as normal again.

    The GTVBox App will play some formats that the standard media player will not, and it will play them through file shares and DLNA shares.
