Pioneer AVH Receivers (Head Units) – How to get video, pictures, wallpaper and cover art to work

What sort of formats are supported for USB memory devices and USB hard disks??

FAT16 and FAT32 are supported for USB memory devices and USB hard disks. NTFS is not supported.

How to get videos to play?

What I found that worked was using Divx Video Converter (Windows) and DivX Converter (Linux)

*When using Divx Video Converter (Windows) I felt for best results setting the output profile to Divx mobile.

*When using DivX Converter (Linux) I felt for best results setting Output Preset at Normal Quality and the Video Filters to DivX 4

Resolution:

640×360 to 640×480

FPS:

23.97 to 30

Video bitrate (kbps)

800

Pictures and Wallpaper

Pioneer head unit likes 800×480 Images

Cover Art

Pioneer no longer reads image files out of folders. It likes metadata embedded album art.

What I felt was the fastest and easiest way to do this was using TagScanner (Windows)

It was able to download covers via online databases like freedb, Discogs or MusicBrainz and embed them into the mp3 file.
