How can I write to NTFS on an iMac running Mojave?

I need help copying large video files to an NTFS drive on an iMac so that I can play some valuable home movies on my Toshiba TV, which only accepts NTFS or FAT32-formatted drives. I initially tried to format my USB drive to FAT32 but realized that it couldn't save individual files larger than 4GB. So I opted for NTFS and chose to use Paragon and Tuxera to format the USB to NTFS. The former managed to format the drive but won't let me write to it and the latter is preventing me from opening the disk. Any suggestion is appreciated.

A more capable NTFS driver like iBoysoft NTFS for Mac will allow you to read/write to the NTFS drives on Mac.

I highly recommend this tool because it's reliable for formatting and writing to NTFS drives on Macs running macOS High Sierra, macOS Mojave, or later. Besides, it can also repair NTFS drives on Mac and grant read/write access to Boot Camp partitions. With it, you can easily copy the video files from your iMac to the USB drive.
