Samsung Qled 2018 - Can't play on my Smart TV Avi files present in my PLEX directory


I just bought a brand new Samsung Qled 2018.
First annoying surprise is that my new Smart Tv can't play, yet, Avi files through my USB connexion. If anybody has a tip ?

I installed PLEX App on my Samsung and on my Macbook Air. Synchronised my movie files (Avi & Mkv). Find them on PLEX on my Samsung by the Tv can't play Avi files. Mkv files work well.

Any idea ?
