Playing Videos from Iphone without the Adapter

I think this is just some software glitch but found interesting...

Actually it gives me the access to the menu but doesnt play anything Videos or Music eventhough the screen shows teh files name.

Basically i have enables the USB HUB parameter and Videp streaming parameter

Hey Dreamcar,

Were you able to get anywhere with this one? I'm really interested to see if we can enable this in our 2012 F10's without the need for the snap in adapter.

I can start looking into the parameters when I get home as well

I think the missing link is which video input on the back of the CIC unit (if any) is linked by default to playback from USB1 (USB2 being the snapin).

Alternatively, identifying a key which maps the current video port connected to the snapin, to the USB1 instead.

Most of this has been gone through in various 6NR retrofit threads/other forums, the main point to remember, is that there is no video decoding capability in the CIC, so its about physical composite video signal routing.

Kanuk,
I was able to activate the video Menu configuring the USB hub parameter but unfortunately from the understanding Shawn and I had, we think the regular USB cable cannot transmit the video even if the menu is accessible. Hope it makes sense to you.

To get video, the 6FL USB AUX-In Port needs to be switched with a USB AV-In Port, and then a Video connection made from it to the CIC. I'm not sure if after than 6NR is still needed, but if it is, the FSC Code needs to be obtained and programmed into the CIC which is several hundred dollars.

In HU_CIC, CDMM_USB_VIDEO changed to value 'both' will enable the listing of video files & the play video button on the player for both USB ports (armrest & snap-in).

But as said, the Apple architecture on the iPhone does not send digital video out nor is the CIC programmed to play any video file format/container from storage.

A CIC unit on the bench is needed to test if any video port is active, or can be set to active with the AUX1 parameters, independent of other VO.

@Kanuk, do you have 6NR?

Yes I do have 6NR - Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you as I didn't get a chance to hook up my cable in recent days.

I did find Shawn's handy website of www.bmwvin.com which will now keep me from having to open up Esys to ensure I have a standard option.

As for the video coding, would it be in the realm of possibility to code an app for the iphone to decode video as its sent out through the USB cable? I know its possible on something like a Smart TV, but i'm assuming that's because the TV can actually decode video files..

I know it's an old thread but it's probably appropriate to resurrect it.... I have an f10 LCI with the new pro nav option, and I can listen to the audio from video podcasts, and in some cases I'll actually see a still from the video, but never any actual moving pictures. Is it possible on the new pro nav- via coding perhaps - to activate video playback either from my ipod or from USB?

Yes. You need to enable it, and the 3 or 4 codecs in HU_NBT.

I can play video from iphone without 6nr. I confirm what Shawn and Miotoo said: a connection between CIC and usb1 or usb2 (snap in) has needed.

Yes, but that is for CIC. NBT has already 6FL USB video connection to Head Unit.

FDL Code the following:

HU_NBT => API_USB_VIDEO = both
HU_NBT => ENT_CODEC_OGG = aktiv
HU_NBT => ENT_CODEC_VCD = aktiv
HU_NBT => ENT_CODEC_XVID = aktiv
HU_NBT => ENT_MC_VIDEO_SUPPORT = aktiv

I have same problem with evilweasel but my car isnot NBT. Some one retrofited it to my car and he played videos from his iphone4, but I was using Iphone5 and never tried it by myself. Last night connected my friend's iphone4 with y cable. I got musics with sound and with cover arts. When tried to play video, gives black screen with sound. I am tthinking about the problem, it could be IOS7? Or needs jailbreak? Or maybe I would change retrofited codes by mistake?
What are you thinking?

Hi, are you using iPhone 5 or iPhone 4? I have iPhone 5 and was told iPhone 5 has no video playback capability via snap-in adapter? If you have been able to play video on iPhone 5, please provide some assistance. Mine is CIC with retrofit 6NR and 6NF (6FL originally from BMW), 1/2012 build 2012 550i.

Thanks.

Iphone 5 has no video out. You can use it only with Iphone4. I suggest you to buy a Iphone4 and limitless internet connection. Mirroring Iphone screen very cool. I have no TV on my car but now I can watch online TV programs withh Iphone4.

Which App do you use for streaming online video through snapin media?

Hi Shawn - I'm trying to do my best to code on my own, and have successfully implemented most of the basics….


However, this one seems to be eluding me. Can you help me, suggest some advice to move this one along on my side? Background:
2014 LCI 550
I have HUD, HK audio, a snap in adaptor….not sure what else is relevant.
I have FDL Coded the HU_NBT changes listed above, though maybe not in the order listed above (if that matters).
I just downloaded that newer e-sys/pszdata via you and token master last week.
I get audio for the video from my iPhone 4s via Bluetooth, USB, Snap-In too. Just no video.
I did get video in motion to work as well.

Is there something basic that I'm just overlooking?

Thanks in advance - and feel free to PM of direct me elsewhere if appropriate.

Frank

Are you talking about Video from the Snap-In Adapter?

My understanding is that with the new iDrive 4.2, this is no longer possible, and that all video is through the center armrest USB Port only now.

I have an Ipod Touch 4G (30 pin) tethering off my Samsung Note 2. As of right now it does not mirror the display on the Ipod Touch. I have the OGG, VCD, XVID active but didn't know about MC_VIDEO_SUPPORT. I will have to activate that feature to see if this will work. I will report back.

Didn't work. I'm getting a still picture of the video. And the video feature is not active in the "addition media". When I stick a usb that has video files a video tab pops up under additional media.
