Just a bit of a curiosity question here.  Why can't you simply copy an MP4, MOV, or WMA video file to a MicroSD & play it back on the goggles?  The goggles include built-in demo videos so they can obviously play video files.  Why do they only allow you to play raw videos recorded on a DJI aircraft?  Am I missing something?  The goggles should allow this and if they don't I would certainly offer this common sense suggestion for a goggle firmware update.

Hi, sir. For now, we do not support users to copy video in SD cards and watch it through goggles. We would recommend users watch the recording 1080p videos from drones.

It does work.
The problem is the audio codec. I've played several movies (MP4) I copied to the microSD card but the sound does not play.
I would have to sped some more time identifying a proper sound format.

And, by the way, the picture quality is very good.

I bet it looks great.  I'd love to be able to copy a few of my produced missions to a MicroSD & enjoy them on the goggles.  Would be a great way to show off the capability of the goggles to others as well.  This seems to be any easy addition & something they should add quickly.

Hello, Sir, this function is not fully supported in Goggles at this moment, please pay attention to our website about the future firmware release, thank you.

I am able to do this on the latest firmware. Confirmed this morning with a movie in MP4 file format. Looks okay from the googles. I wish DJI would support exfat format instead of just fat32 for the sd card.

I'm having trouble with playback of MP4 video from the MicroSD on both the original & RE goggles.  Either the file wont show up in the directory (on root of MicroSD) or if it does it doesn't play.  I wonder if you could have the engineers have a look at the file & ascertain why it won't playback?  Would also be appreciated if they could add WMV  (Windows) as a supported format?

Dji is advertising:

More Video Options

DJI Goggles RE play videos in a variety of different formats, including MP4, MOV, and MKV, so users have even more ways to experience immersive media. Users can also view 6K 360-degree panoramas.

I am not able to play any of these formats. (Except I plug into my sd card of one of my drones)

So dji, maybe one of your admins can give an andvise how to do this?

Just updated both goggles to the latest.  .300 for white ones.  .200 for RE set.

The video shows up in the directory with a blank thumbnail image.  When I attempt to play I get sound only for about 45 seconds at which point the sound begins to stumble & eventually stops. Same with both goggles.

Please forward the video I linked to the engineers & see if they can figure it out.  Thank you.

It is due to hardware driver not compatible with some MPEG4 video. You can try to convert this video to H264 format.

It is actually possible to copy videos to the sdcard and play them back in the Goggles , but first the sdcard must be indexed by the drone.
In other words there must be at least one or two videos on the sdcard taken by the drone before inserting into the DJI Goggles.
The videos must be copied to the DCIM folder, then renamed DJI_0001,DJI_0002,ect,ect,ect.
The DJI Goggles will now recognize those files, minus a video thumbnail, only a blank video image will appear in the Goggles.

Clever idea to fool the software into playing your video. So if the drone has put DJI_0001 and DJI_0002 on the card, do I rename my videos DJI_0001 and DJI_0002 to replace the existing videos? Or can I rename the new videos DJI_0003 and DJI_0004?

I tried to put my MOV and MP4 files into the DJI_VIDEO and USER_MEDIA directories but the Goggles RE won't see it in "Local Storage" - saying the "file list is empty".
How can I playback my videos?

I couldn't fibd the answer in the FAQ and in the Manual.
