Car Head-Unit that Can Play FLV

Last night, I've downloaded the "Shiny Toy Guns - Major Tom (Coming Home)" music video (see TrackBack below) as a FLV file. And I've been obsessed over it. I kept playing it back over and over again. I even wanted to play it back in my car when I drove to work.

Then it occurred to me that it would be awesome if there is a car audio head-unit that can play back FLV files. FLV files are making a wave with the popularity of YouTube and other video distribution sites. My car audio head-unit can already accept a SD Card or a flash drive and play-back MP3's. It wouldn't be hard to add FLV format support.

On car audio head-units that doesn't have a LCD display, just play the audio track of the FLV file. But on head-units that does have a LCD display, both the video and audio can be played back. That would be awesome. Is there already such a head-unit?

Tempting. But how does the Bittorrent work? You log in and tell it what torrent to download?

Title: 2010 Lincoln MKZ "LUXURY AT LIGHTSPEED"
Weblog: NeoSciGen
Excerpt: My favorite commercial is the "LUXURY AT LIGHTSPEED" commercial that advertises the 2010 Lincoln MKZ. It has this lady that sings this surreal song, which makes you want to just keep watching it. But, of course, it ends too soon, so I'm on a quest to look for that song. I've embedded the commercial . . .
