MIB2 video playback

I have an Canadian 8" MIB2 in my 2016 GTI and I have read a few places that it plays video, I have tried .avi and .mkv which don't work at all, .mp4 plays audio only. I've tried it through DVD, USB, and SD and so far nothing works.

Am I missing something here?

Also, how up to date are the maps? There is a highway in my area that opened up in 2014 which isn't on my nav, how can I update it?

There is a bug in apple car play that will allow a video on the mib2 screen. Do you own an iphone?

I don't condone this because driving distractions are bad, however I have used it for my toddler a handful of times admittedly.
