I'm looking at the manual and I don't see VCD listed for supported format OR formats not supported. Since it's not listed in either case I'm going to have to guess this unit doesn't support it. Perhaps Samsung's site will give more info?

Question

Why is the audio choppy on the MLBTV app?

According to MLB tv, it's a Samsung issue...but I can't find anything on it. The audio on every game goes in and out about every 5 seconds.

Make sure to upgrade your firmware first. This may resolve the issue as this unit apparently has a problem with choppy video/audio when using online services like Netflix, etc. The firmware update fixes this issue. Check your manual on how to update it.

If that doesn't fix it then you may not have enough bandwidth to handle the game's video and audio. The MLB plugin should allow you to downgrade the quality of the video (to free up bandwidth), and that may help you too. Good luck!

I’m sorry you are having an issue with your device. Although with the information you have provided I do not have a solution for you; contacting Samsung Service (refer to your device's manual for more information or visit Samsung's website) would be your best next course of action.

Since the BD-D5700 offers AllShare (DLNA streaming feature), it should be able to access a NAS connected to your home router.

The USB outlet is on the right side of the front of the DVD player (it has a cap on it, just pull it open) and you just need to go into the dvd controls to switch to using the flash drive. It will play most anything you have on your flash drive.

All Bluray players can play on older non-HDTVs! All of these players have a built in setting that detects what type of TV you have so it will downsample the video so it will play on older TVs. Also on the back is standard video/audio connections that you can use as well as a HDMI port for when you do upgrade to a new HDTV. (HDMI is a must for a digital signal to a HDTV)

Although having an HDTV is recommended, you should still be able to use this product with an SDTV and use all of its features, including Netflix.

Although the player should upconvert a DVD that is not HD to 1080p, the output resolution can be manually set to the same resolution as your display. Additionally, when you connect the player to the TV using the HDMI cable for the first time or to a new TV, the HDMI output resolution will be automatically set to the highest supported by the TV.
