Tips: A lot of online search and testing shows that Sharp TV only supports to play MP4 file encoded with H.264 video codec and AAC audio codec. So for playing H.265 MKV and other unsupported video formats on Sharp TV via USB, you need to convert your videos to H.264 AAC MP4 via third-pary software.
If the MKV file is too large to fit on your 8GB usb drive, you can reduce its file size in various different ways. If you do not want to lose any file quality, you can split the large file into small parts by file size, count or length or trim to cut off unwanted parts to leave only your wanted segments. If you do not care too much about output video quality, you can try the following ways to compress MKV file with some quality lossage:

- Lower the output video resolution
- Lower the bit rate 20-50% of the default to get small files
- Lower the frame rate of the video to 15 or 10 fps can reduce the file size by as much as 1/2 or 2/3
