NTFS will stutter, just do fat32 and get the bitrate low and all good...

Hi Steve, but doesn't the file size need to be under 4GB for fat32, how would you keep bitrate low and quality high?
How would you put 2hrs of HD footage onto a USB drive? :)

See my post USB to TV for under the 4gb.. that was only a hour long feature movie!
two hours of HD footage now you have me stumped. Do you really give your clients two hours of footage?

Hi Steve,
I don't want to, but that's the norm in my parts. I don't see any way round it.
If I could get away with less I would.

Re: best format for USB delivery

I have always broken up the USB footage into "events" so no file exceeds even 2gb!! They will play seamless on most devices and although I should work on an HTML 5 menu for now I just name the file intelligently so even a dumb bride should understand that a file called 0001Preparation.mp4 is her getting ready. (It's important to have a bunch of zeros otherwise computers tend to list them badly. If you have a file called 00003Ceremony.mp4 she should be able to figure out that's her ceremony and it will also be 3rd on the list after Prep and Arrivals

They seem to have no problem with individual MP4's and it also allows them to skip to any event whether it's on a TV, computer or media player

OK cool, try using a 8gb then divide the film into two sequences, burn one sequence to the USB then the other sequence see if that works. Failing that you may have to stick with your original plan but let the customer worry how to play on the TV. Or as Chris says? steve
