I didnt think you could play video. If its an aftermarket unit have you grounded the green (from memory) wire?
Usually videos dont play unless the green wire is grounded, usually to the handbrake to prevent you watching video's whilst driving

It's an andriod auto headunit.
Basically a few different apps need downloaded for it to play films, videos etc.
From what I've read this week and tried myself my phone needs rooted to allow playback

I've yet to venture into the video playback, but sounds accurate with the phone rooting. Should be easy enough!

Only problem being rooting the phone leaves it more open to hacking and online banking might not work seemingly
