Sharp Aquos Android TV Model 2TC42BG1X – How To Play Video From USB Drive

sharp aquos android tv Model 2TC42BG1X - 42 inch

This is my first time having a Sharp TV and at same time Android TV. Most all of my TV is Samsung TV. Samsung has very good user experience and better quality in term of video & audio. Besides it can connect to my phone and has good after sales support.

I bought my first Sharp Android TV due to its cheaper price vs Samsung and plan to put it at my AirBnb unit.

I tried to play video from my USB drive using my Sharp Aquaos Android TV. To my dismay, it is very hard to do it, it is not intuitive like Samsung TV. Besides it is lacks of documentation even after Google it.

After try and error, I found how to do it.
