Hi Gazza,

Yes, I would recommend to update firmware of bluray player as it is the only option that can add video codecs (if available in firmware update) that would help to resolve the issue, please check following link for update details..

Alternate way is to download a video converter software (lots are available) in PC then convert camera video file in that MP4 format that this bluray player recognize and plays.

I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
A positive rating to answer would be greatly appreciated!
