Question Integrating iPhone Video to iDrive

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone could provide any leads on how to get the video files (or from youtube) from iPhone streamed to the iDrive. Currently I can only stream the audi through bluetooth and usb.

Thanks,
Mits

Thank you Giant84 for your reply,

Are you sure this can be done with the cradle? When I checked other threads, I got to know that the cradle will bring in only the features like your playlist, facebook, pandora etc.. Nobody has mentioned anything about the video. Do you know anyone who has installed cradle and was able to view the video files.

From what I know the cradle has the video playback, not sure if there is any other way to do it without it. But I think the cradle is the only way.

Also, the cradle is not required for playlists, Pandora, Facebook, MOG, Twitter, etc... The white USB cable will work fine for that.

To add, the cradle does have the video playback feature.

I can vouch for the cradle transmitting video.

Why is it that when I directly plug my iPhone in with the white Apple USB cable it doesn't allow me to use any apps other than Pandora (and even then it says I must start the app from my phone first). I am actually wondering why I got the BMW Assist and BMW Apps for at this point as there isn't much beyond audio functionality I've been able to get to work with my iPhone 4 (either via bluetooth or USB).
