Problem no1 - My Iphone videos wont play when i connect it to my bravia by usb but some of my songs come up .
Answered- Okay this happened to me to and probably every other person know where did i find tat it said it would play mpeg4 but it does youll need to convert the files to play them on there - Easy way i do it is i use Ilivid downloader and download a film from tube save it in mp4 then send it to my hp usb flash i just stick that in to the tv and voila . For your personal vids you want to see on the tv you can use a jail broke iphone to mirror and see in big screen the iphones screen but that doesnt satisfy me i need the whole screen connect to your laptop and convert your videos files to mpeg 4 using a converter try freemake its simple but works well add them to your usb and then you can view them it took me about 15 minutes to upload my vids on my laptop of my iphone and convert thenm to mpeg 4 then save to my usb flash i use hp as it seems to work well with the sony bravia .
