Short answer is a qualified yes.
By connecting the video output of your computer, tablet, or phone to a composite video input on the Genesis, you can play MP4 movies on the TV using the HDMI output on the Genesis to the HDMI input on the TV.
As you discovered, the USB port on the front of the Genesis can't spool large MP4 files (bigger than 100 megs or so).
Long answer (and better one if your TV can support it) is to connect a small (up to 2 Terabyte) USB hard drive (not a stick - only 32 Gig max) to the USB port on your Smart LG LED TV. Just select the device using your input control for the TV. Surround Audio will exit the TV via the Fiber Optic port and go into the Fiber Optic input on the Genesis. This will give you 1080i and surround sound to enjoy those MP4s.
If you are coming to the Rally I would be happy to show you how to set it up.
