    It depends on the format of the video, but might I suggest MPlayerX, a free video player app on the Mac App Store that has a very wide range of compatible formats.

    You may need to install codecs should you experience either sound or picture loss, apart from that its just plug and play.

    If you are having trouble playing the video, you might want to check out this article to find a video player that might work for you: // As long as you can access the video file from your USB drive, then you should be able to play it, so long as you have a player that supports the video format.

    if you have a Mac
    1.Plug Usb
    2.Open USB device by clicking on the device icon
    3.double Click on the file you want
    4. If the File doesn't play , because its not a format compatible with Quick Time/ iTunes Down load and install Perian (itunes plays almost everything now) , or mplayerx or Vlc and open it with them (Right Click menu)

    Wait for few seconds
    open ----> My computer -----> (Your disk drive)-----> double click your video
    and if it doesn't work try installing vlc player and retrying the steps

    dude, connect the USB stick to the computer and wait until it loads up! then open the USB stick and select the video file! double click on it and it'll start playing if it's in native codec. if it doesn't play download k-lite codec pack and install it! then open the video again. it'll play for sure!

    You need a media player to play video or audio files. You should install VLC Media Player.
    Download VLC Media Player for Mac from here:
