How to watch movies via flash drive in Sony Bravia?

I am not sure if this issue persists in new versions of Sony Bravia, but in older versions of Sony Bravia, there was an issue while playing video files. People reported this issue on many forums, so I thought I should write something to guide people with this simple solution, which I tried. It’s free and very fast. you can covert large movie files of around 1 GB to m2ts within a minute and watch them using pen drive.

May be you are looking for a solution for the same problem. So here’s what you need to do in order to watch movies via pen drive in Sony Bravia if your TV did not recognize your video files.

You can try this solution for other TVs also.
