So my TV went ( huffy ) and self destruct himself like a Voltorb. So in my hunt for buying a new TV, I need your guys help in terms of FORMATS.




Is there any site where I can get easy SHORT SIZE samples of,
_____
H264 1080P MP4
_____
H264 1080P MKV
_____
H265 1080P MP4
H265 1080P MKV
_____
DUAL AUDIO H264 1080P MP4
DUAL AUDIO H264 1080P MKV
_____
DUAL AUDIO H265 1080P MP4/MKV
_____


The help would be immensely appreciated. I want to TEST these formats on the TV before buying one. I need them asap and I have a crappy internet connection, I can't possible download entire movies/TVshows of each format. OR IS THERE ANY UPLOADER WITH MANY FORMATS AND ALWAYS INCLUDES SAMPLES ?


EDIT:

So in future anyone wants these formats to check their TV or something (and doesn't want to download whole movies due to slow internet), I am posting links to some Samples I found. Hope this helps someone like me.

I have an LG TV(webOS) it plays all fine except x265 formats. I have a 1TB HDD connected to record TV, and use a USB (formatted NTFS) to play my files.

Is it a HD or FullHD.
Does HD TVs (768p) have problems playing 1080p videos ?
Even 1080p videos like YIFY or NeZu and sorts. not super high quality. And have you checked a DUAL AUDIO format? Does the TV gives you the option to select the audio ?

I would avoid any Sony TV simply because they put Cinavia anti-piracy software on all their products.

Sweet dream to have. But my budget won't even let me go to 42inch. I am satisfied with 32inch-FullHD-IPS display.

I currently have a LG 60LB6100(Discontinued) purchased about a year ago. However, I would expect newer models would adhere to the same settings or better.
I watch movies and listen to music via Western Digital My Passport Ultra-Portable Hard Drive. The only issues so far have been 1) music ".flac" files will not show up on the list of songs. I converted them to mp3 using AVS Audio 7.2 and they play fine. 2) Some movies I need to change the show subtitles "Off" every time I watch it, others it stays "Off" once selected.

I also use Chromecast via my phone to watch video on the TV.

(Off Topic)
Don't use Chrome browser anymore since it started doing all kinds of weird stuff, redirecting me at random, opening tabs at will to everything from Dating Sites to Exotic Vacations, all trying to sell stuff. When using the scroll bar on right side of page, of times the screen would freeze.

Specs Video DivX HD
Photo JPEG, JPS, MPO
Audio AC3 (Dolby Digital), EAC3, HE-AAC, AAC, MPEG, MP3, PCM, DTS

Invented by Sony (or they own the technology) Cinavia is embedded in the audio tracks of some DVDs & Blu-Ray titles. (not all movies, just some)
There is another version that is soundless played in theaters to thwart cams too.

When a Blu-ray player (or Sony device) detects the Cinavia,
and it comes from a source other than the original DVD or Blu-Ray disc,
the audio is shut off. What makes this most annoying, usually it occurs 20 minuted into the film.
On the cams, it's detected within seconds and the video stops playing on those.

Only an year ago, and you positive it supports MKV ?
I am a little rusty in encoders and everything.
DivX HD means anything DivX like DivX mp4 / mkv would work.
How about H264 or H265 ??
