I have converted my old VHS-movies to MP4 and put them on a USB to be able to watch them on my smartTV which works well. However, I want a DVD-simular menu where I can have a description, and maybe a picture of each movie and links to play the movies instead of folders and long lists that the USB memory presents them when I put the flash drive in my TV. Is this possible? I know I can solve this by connecting a computer to my TV or cast to the TV (e.g Chromecast) but it is not a solution I am looking for.
My first solution was to make a simple html page that opens in TV browsers but html is not viewable on a USB in my TV. See the image below which formats it supports.
It supports the file format *.flv and thought I could make a simple page in old adobe flash but *.flv only supports moving images and not integration with buttons/links. I guess I need *.SWF-file to make a menu.
I have tested several programs that can create DVDs and menus of movie files (mp4) because my TV can handle *.vob, the problem is that it also converts my mp4-files to DVD format. I want to keep them in mp4 (they should be untouched as they are already optimized) and only add the DVD menu.
I found this HowTo create DVD-like Menus in MP4 - MP4Menu which seems to be something for what I want to accomplish but seems very complicated and the thread is 19 years old and thinks it should have gotten a little better since then.
Is it possible to create a menu with a descriptive text for my movies that I have on a USB to my smartTV (not an android TV)?
