Use Your Portable DVD Player As a Monitor

Intro: Use Your Portable DVD Player As a Monitor

In this short video, I show you how to use the input function on your portable DVD player. 90 percent of decent quality portable DVD player's have this function.

This is a little simple for an instructable, but I use it all the time and I thought I would share.

Thanks for watching!

    Do this hack with a DVD player that doesn't have A/V IN ports. That'll impress me. Oh yeah... Please.

    No one has ever heard of 'pretty please, with cream and sugar and a cherry on top"? Wow. BTW get over it.

    I was just putting out a challenge to do this hack with a portable DVD that does not have AUDIO/VIDEO inputs.

    Interesting that you call this a "hack", when you're doing something that the DVD player was designed to do. A hack is doing something that the item you're hacking wasn't designed to do.

    This remark is as True as it gets. I am a hardcore non-stereotypical hacker. Hacking: Is to hack Hack: To use something beyond it's authorization or beyond it's normal purpose. or microcomputer user who attempts to gain unauthorized access to proprietary computer systems.
