Introduction: Play Video Via USB on Nissan or Infiniti Vehicles (May Work for Others)

If you have a Nissan or Infiniti vehicle with the in vehicle entertainment system, you probably noticed that USB was an optional video source. You might have even put some videos on a flash drive and tried to play them. But as of 2014, the Nissan system is still using a 13 year old Codec called DivX. It’s not the greatest quality, and the files are big, but it does work and it was really cheap for Nissan. To put it bluntly, that $2000 entertainment systems uses the same format that your $50 10 year old DVD player uses. It’s easiest if you put them all in one folder, but if you’re organized, that’s not really critical.

after all this is 2014! I’ve found all sorts of great kids materials online and we’ve ripped several movies for them. A great idea is two Flash drives, one with short clips for short trips, and other discs full of full length videos. To do this, you’ll need to do what’s called “Transcoding” which is to convert them from whatever format they are currently in, to a DivX compatible format with the Right FourCC code. The easiest, legal and free solution I’ve found is to use WinFF which is really just a graphical interface to the ffMPEG transcoder. You always want to use the 64 Bit version of software if you can since it can use up all that powerful hardware without limitations. But if you try the 64 bit version and it doesn’t work, just download the (all windows versions)
