Anyone had any luck getting movies to play thru MyLink? I added a few movies to my USB while playing with music files and can't get them to play. I also added a few music videos encoded within the specs set in the owners manual. The music videos play fine and have decent resolution. However when I try to play the movie it gives an error. If I trim the movie down to 10 minute intervals it also plays fine. Am I doing something wrong. I'm using .wmv format and bitrates are within the specifications. Any Ideas? It's like the file size messes with it.

If I recall, the USB stick has to be formatted to in FAT32. This limits the size of video that can me saved on the USB, , I forget if only AVI files can be played ? But for sure re-format your USB to FAT32. Now, has anyone figured out how to watch a movie without having to have the Trax in park ?

My USB is formatted to exFAT but I will try FAT32 and format the movie to avi see what happens!
As far as the watching the movie without it in park. I have noticed the music videos I could get to play would play in gear as long I was stopped and under 5mph. Must be software controlled. I don't see a park switch input on the schematic for the radio but it does use serial data wire to receive info from other modules. I'm betting vehicle speed is one of those. :( Makes sense as the radio has speed controlled volume!

I had a movie work yesterday. My USB was formatted to FAT32 and my movie file was .wmv, mp4 did not work. Make sure the video resolution isn't to large. I used 854 x 480, 1920 x 1080 was to large.
