The reason you cannot play video on this TV's USB port is because the tv is not capable of doing so .

It was designed for photo and music only , you can see that in the manual (link below) on page 64 (66 reader) and on ;

What you would need is a small usb to hdmi media player , there are quite a few models but here is an example ;
