Anyone know if it's possible to play video files from a usb thumb drive, and if so, what the format is? I can't find any info on the googles. I know there are some hacks you can install, but I'd rather use it normally if I can.

I got the interface, it plays video... but even with the videos converted to that format, it look horrible and pixelated. This screen resolution is just not very good for video playback.

What resolution do you have your videos? I have 640 x 480 avi and they look great. Sometimes the video gets stuck right after I start viewing, but after a few seconds they play right. I guess the system has to catch up to the video player, or the USB stick is not very fast.

I appreciate that Hyundai took the effort to provide composite video from the 1/8" jack and all, but that is dated from the original concept car.

But everything is HDMI now. The days when I would convert video to fit a particular video player are long gone now.

Ford kinda rules the roost for in-dash displays but even they don't have the ability to jack my smartphone in to their display and watch YouTube videos.

The German displays are all a swirling mess of crap and the BMW iDrive is by far the worst. And the Mercedes dash is a close second with their myriad of tiny buttons. And none of them even think about playing video.

I love my VT and its screen and its dash.

What good would HDMI be with a screen that isn't? Then again, with LG and Samsung bring out the best in TV screens, you'd think that some of that would trickle down into their vehicles since it's the norm to watch tv/movies while driving. Apparently not.
