Can you play movies through the USB port?

I have DVD in motion programmed into my car and my kids (5 and 2) love watching it but we are constantly watching the same movie. I think we have watched Tangled about 50 times so far and although it is better than the previous movie (Madeline) I am tired of it. I know that I could bring a bunch of DVD's into the car but thought it would be easier if I could just load them onto a USB drive and play them off of that. Does anyone know if this will work or what format is needed? I have the DVD ripping software and a bunch of the Disney movies already ripped to play on my iPad and TouchPad.

You should be able to play them from your iPod touch/iPhone if you get the "Media Snapin adapter". I also found that I can stream Netflix from there.

Edit: you need to have BMW apps also.

Yep, got that. Not sure why that would be a requirement though?

I do have BMW apps on my X5 2012, but not on 2010.5 M3. It cant even do blutooth audio?
Is there any way around, or retrofit?

So is there no way to play movies on a 2011 (post September production) M3? I mean while you are driving.
