Solved* The G20 supports .MOV files and you can play it straight to your screen. I'm using my cameras SD card reader to plug into the USB-C port. I'll attach a photo

Does anyone know what files/formats the G20 supports from the usb-c drive? I came across someone on social media (photo attached) who had a movie playing on his screen and wanted to try this out.

Not sure for the best resolution. At this point I'm trying to figure out how to get more movies in .mov format. Also it would be cool to watch movies while driving but I'm sure that would have to be coded somehow
