It works from my YouTube app on my iPhone and share to the Tesla app. The tesla screen will show the video while in my Tesla is in Park.
How do you do this and why would you send a YouTube video from your phone to the Tesla app and then have it play in the car? Wouldn't it be easier to just use YouTube directly from the car?

How do I send videos to play in the Tesla Theater from my iPhone? The release notes only say to "Share" the video link with the Tesla mobile app. Okay...how?
Share means use the share option from the app in question. Share to the Tesla app like you do addresses to the Nav. Be sure it’s set to the right car if you have more than one.

I’ve not done this but that’s how sharing works. The correct file type should go to the correct app in the car.

It bridges a gap with someone IM you a funny video and your buddy sends it to you and you are able to receive it on your phone, then you want to play it in your car...without searching for it.
 
I want to view MP4's stored on the SSD...
When I try to share a video I made in iMovie with the Tesla App I get a response on my Iphone: ERROR There was a problem sharing content with your vehicle. Please try again later.

Although no success the fact that this response refers to "your vehicle" says something. I got no response when I tried to share a YouTube, Netflix and HULU video. It makes no sense to me the "supported video sources" are referring to the Apps you already have in Tesla Theater.
