Default D5100 videos

Straight to the problem, I have recently been taking as well as stills some videos , something I said I was not interested in. Anyway, I put my SD card into my PC place them in a folder ,then put them all onto a USB flash drive .I then show them to others on their laptops etc.
But!! when I plug the USB into a Blue Ray player it will not play the videos only the photo's.
Can someone tell me what I need to do and hopefully how to do it. It seems I am missing a file change or something??
Thanks in advance.

Check the documentation for your Blu-Ray player to see which video file formats it will play.

Hello T Cav,
Happy New Year !
Basically I haven't yet bought a Blue Ray player . A friend of mine reckoned that his B R player would play my Videos straight from a usb Memory stick that I use to watch them on via various laptops and PCs. I could not, so I burnt one of them onto a DVD in Mpeg, his B R Player wouldn't play that either. His player supports Video WM V9, Mpeg 1. 2. and 4 plus AVC HD.
the USB supports Fat 32 / NSC.
So I'm thinking I will stop bothering with videoing with the D5100 or maybe get this:-
WD TV Live Media Player which appears to be up to the job.

The D5100 has an HDMI Out port. How about you bypass the Blu-Ray Player, get an HDMI cable and connect your camera directly to his TV? You won't be able to control the playback (unless you get a cable long enough to reach from his TV to his sofa), but you won't have to mess with all the file formats.

Yes that does work fine.
I was just trying to put all the videos onto a memory stick with my photos and play them on a TV. Doing it the hard way I suppose. It's usual for me to do most things the hard way, at least that's what my wife says.:-)
The WD media player looks good though and it appears to play virtually all formats.
I've Googled my problem and apparently it's very common for people to be having difficulty putting their HD DSLR video files onto other media.
Anyway thanks for the suggestion T Cav.
