I've got enhanced Bluetooth (whatever that's got to do with playing video from USB), but no video shows up in media> more media

In what format is the video encoded?

Well I've tried various, but mostly Mp4 h264. None off them shows up in the media list, and the menu doesn't show 'video' as one of the 'more media' options. My assumption was that that option only shows up when there are video files the i3 considers readable. My dealer says that the "i3 does not play videos".

In Europe, I think one of the options is a TV tuner, so my guess is that the car can display video, but it may be disabled for the USA. The backup camera is a digital signal, BTW, not analog, but then anything you got off of a USB stick would be digital as well.

I'm in the UK (there's no TV Tuner option). The Android manual (downloaded based on my VIN), like the one earlier shows it as being able to play video.
