In the case of some files where there was no title in the metadata, it showed up as "title 01" or "Chapter 1." Once I edited the metadata, everything showed up exactly like I wanted on the UConnect movie selection window.
Had the same problem and ended up with a bunch of "Chapter 1"'s showing up on UConnect. I used the free Subler app on Mac OSX to fix up the metadata. Worked great.

I'm on Windows 10, so I used MKVToolNIX. Pretty useful tool.

No special program is required to change metadata on windows computers. All you have to do is right click the file, open properties go to details and change the "title" under description. That will change the metadata. Hope that helps.

Is that for mkv and mp4? I haven't tried using mp4, but on any of my mkv I was unable to edit any information under description.

I am willing to concede that it was operator error on my part. I'll check it out again when I get home tonight.

Just tried editing metadata on the mkv and was unable to do it from description. Converted an mp4 and WAS able to edit metadata from the description.

So--at least in my experience and in my operating environment--with mkv, you DO need a program like the one I mentioned to edit metadata after initial conversion.

That makes sense since mkv is only a container. I only tried it after converting to mp4. Thanks for the information.

Do videos on USB have to have a screen width of exactly 1200 to be readable by Uconnect or do they just have to be no more than 1200? For example, if I'm converting something that's already SD (640x480), will it work or do I need to adjust the screen width to 1200?

I believe that should be fine as many of the videos I've converted from standard DVDs using Handbrake are less than that, and they all work fine.

Cool, then I should be able to rip kids shows right off the TiVo since they're already all in SD. Thanks!

USB Drive for Uconnect Theater

I am having a very hard time getting any thumb drives to work with my Uconnect theater. I'd like to be able to play videos for my kids on the seatback screens from the USB, but none that I have tried have worked.

Could anyone who has had success please post what hardware you're using? Brand/Model/Size/Formatting would be great to know, if you could tell me.
