Play video from USB

Reading the manual is a tad confusing in the way its worded but, should you be able to play video via USB with MFT or does it only play video when using the composite inputs ?

Must be composite only. I've tried USB and a DVD. No luck.

Hi, bigdesignmachine -

Now534 and Burns098356GX are correct. You have to use the composite for video and the vehicle must also be in park to utilize this feature.

Let me know if you have any additional questions.

It's really a shame they opted for composite. All my devices have digital video out only. My android does micro HDMI, my laptop does Apple Mini Display Port
If I could use the screen for non video (computer display) while driving it would be useful. I'm not going to buy a portable DVD player to watch things while parked.

Yeah it is a bummer that MFT cannot play from other sources. Seems a little short sighted. I get why they dont allow video playback during driving.

I did see some module you can buy that by-passes the feature but it costs around $450. Seems a little over priced but I guess its one of those things....if you want it bad enough, youre going to pay out the ass for it.
