Im trying to play music videos and or movie files from my computer on my Headunit. I have the pioneer AHV-4200DVD. I tryed putting the MPEG file of a music video on an sd card and put it in the head unit to play and no dice. I looked in the instruction book and it says it only plays wma file. so i downloaded a video conver ( 3 different ones) and converted them to wma files on the sd card and still it just plays audio. I went out and bought the new ipod touch 5th gen. converted the files to mp4 and loaded them into itunes and then into the ipod then plugged it in to play through the usb port on the head unit and still just audio. then i heard from some people that i need an adaptor cable from the ipod to the usb input, so i bought one of thoes and still just audio.....

you need to add a switch or a relay to the light green wire (park brake wire) from the unit. it must see ground AFTER ignition. this is very important, video will not work unless this action happens. you cannot just ground the light green wire... also if you plan on playing movies or video clips encoded with Divx, you must unlock the player first. go here for more info Register Your DivX Device | DivX.com (http://www.divx.com/vod)
