How does video on your iphone work on your nav screen?

Hi guys,

Now, I know from the informative thread that the iPhone 4/4s CAN show video on the nav screen and the iPhone 5 can't, but I'm interested on how this actually functions for any of you that uses it.

When working, if you are streaming video from you tube, a music video or a downloaded program for example, does it scale fully up to the nav screen?

Whats the quality like? Could anyone post a photo perhaps?

With all these TV catch-up apps now, I'm a intrigued to know if and how they work (obviously when the car is stationary).

If they do, I may need to buy an old iPhone 4 (as I now have an iPhone 5! )

Any insight appreciated.

For me I only seem able to view video files stored on the iPhone, not display other programs such as catchup tv or youtube. On the iDrive it simply displays a list of the video files similar to it does tracks for music.

Also from what I've seen the same functionality is available from a USB drive as the iPhone, I've not seen any difference in the way it displays videos.
