Note: Does your Samsung TV have a USB port compatible with flash USB drive? Depending on the TV models, sometimes they are compatible with NTFS but most are not. To be able to access content of USB from Samsung TV, most times USB drive has to be formatted in FAT32. That would means that the files should be under 4 GBs in size.
That also means you need to use the "split a large file into several small files function" to get output files under 4GB with iFastime Video Converter Ultimate for Mac. To start splitting into several files with your desired file size before conversion, check the file that you want to split, then choose the option "Split selected task".
When the Video Split window pops up, tick off Enable > Split file size (MB), and either enter the desired maximum size of each file chunk or choose an appropriate size from the available drop down option. In my case I entered 3900 MB for each chunk of file. 4 GB is equal to 4,096 MB, so if you want your file size less than 4GB, just enter/choose the maximum size under 4,096 MB. Besides splitting by file size, you can also split the selected video file by specifying the clip quantity and duration time for each chunk.
Otherwise, you need to format the USB in NTFS if you want to copy files larger than 4 GB. Watch full video to learn how to format the drive from FAT32 to NTFS format in windows:
