Playing videos on MZD Connect

You have many options possible. Personnally I use the "a) Video Player Script" and it's working like a charm !

[ Video Player ][ Smart MZD Player ][ CastScreen ]
a) Video Player Script
+ install on MZD Connect once at all
+ free solution
- need to mute a mp3 file in order to have sound on the video
- not possible to go directly to a specified time of the video
- videos had to be in a specific folder on USB flash drive
Video: See it
Download :
- v2.8 on ninesages.org or on mazdatweaks
- v2.9 on ninesages.org or on mazdatweaks
Installation :
1. download the zip file
2. unzip the file into an empty USB flash drive, directly in the root (without creating a new folder)
3. should be on the USB flash drive at least : 1 folder named "config" (not empty) and 4 files (cmu_dataretrieval.up, dataRetrieval_config.txt, jci-autoupdate, tweaks.sh)
4. in your car :
4.1 power-on the car
4.2 when MZD totally booted, plug in the USB flash drive
4.3 wait the message telling installation is over
4.4 when MZD reboots, unplug the USB flash drive
Seeing Videos:
1. on a USB flash drive create a folder named "movies"
2. put all movies you want in this folder
3. on the root of the USB flash drive, copy any mp3 file
4. in your car:
4.1 power-on the car
4.2 when MZD totally booted, plug in the USB flash drive
4.3 go in the "Media" section and select "USB"
4.4 play the mp3 file which is on the USB flash drive (HAS to be on the same USB flash drive as videos)
4.5 pause it
4.6 go back on MZD main screen and select "Apps"
4.7 launch "Video Player"
4.8 select the video you want to see
