I have a Mac, so I've loaded videos via card reader into Media Folder. I've tried these file types: .mov .mpg .mpeg .mp4 .avi .asf .wmv .m4v

I'll then go to TV/Video/My Videos/Sideloaded The only ones that show up are mp4 & m4v, but I get an Alert that the channel is temp. unavailable and: "javax.microedtion.media.MediaException: start failed" or "javax.microedtion.media.MediaException: Content: unknown not supported with Protocol: file:"

Check your codec - FFMPEG MPEG4 coding works as does Apple H.264.  Not sure about Sorenson or others; haven't tested them.

 

VisualHub (payware) is a great utility to convert videos to the proper size and codec.
