Usually it's because it's from an Apple device - They default to using non-standard video formats that cause trouble with everything else, but also try to h.

If it's exported as an MP4 instead of a HEVC MOV then that should fix the problem...!

If you're doing this on e.g. an iPad, goto Settings and then I think it's Camera or Photos or something like that, and tell it to use compatible codec formats instead of 'high efficiency'.

I've downloaded all the right codecs, but still couldn't see it.

Finally managed to view it. Had to go into the 'View Page Source' then found the .mov file and downloaded it directly. Got it onto my PC and managed to view it.

It does look good 👍 Definitely worth the trouble and effort.

Thank you

Just the job

The parts are in links in the video description, I got mine from aliexpress and honestly took me 30 minutes max to install 🙂

Ive used these switchback LEDs on my MX5. I was advised to fit a 12v regulator to the power feed as you can get more than 12v when the engine is running and the DRL LEDs can be sensitive to over voltge and can blow early. Not sure what other peoples views are. I really like the setup.

I have heard this before but I trust in the guy who did the video. If there was any chance of an overload the resistors would get hot but mine never get warm even. I'm not sure re MX5 but with the Aygo a lot of folk fitted aftermarket drl's and got told to remove them at MOT....These are totally legal so are a great mod and modernisation 🙂

Agree these are good and I have been through MOT with no issues with the MX5. The 12v stabiliser costs bout a tenner from eBay but given these are so cheap I may just risk it on my daughters Aygo. If they blow, I will know what it is. The warning about the over voltage was from a few years ago so the LEDs may have improved.

I would screw the resistors on though. I cant see the tape lasting long.

The other thing you need to do is power off the DRLs when you put the headlights on. That doesnt seem to have been considered here. That could cause an MOT fail. You need to have a relay in the circuit which switches off the DRLs when the headlights go on. Its easy enough but need a bit of thought as the headlights are switched negative.

I had aftermarket DRLs on my Mk1 for 10 years and it passed the MOT every time without comment.

I had the resistors for my LED indicators taped on for over 10 years and they never came loose.

I think you will find that you do need to power off the DRLs when the headlights come on or you could have an issue with MOT etc. Not difficult and someone on here did have a relay diagram. On my MX5 this is how I have it set up. There is a dimming device you can buy but I found it very poor quality so would go with the relay if installing this.

I just wired the DRLs via the NC contact of a changeover relay which had the coil powered by the sidelight feed - so when the sidelights turn on the DRLs turn off.

Thats how I would like to do it but I hear the lights on the mk1 are switched negative. Im trying to find out how to wire the relay. I see yours is a 2020.

The headlights on a Mk1 are switched negative but the sidelights are switched positive (see attached wiring diagram of Mk1 sidelights).

BTW I did this on my previous Mk1 - no need to do it on a Mk2 as it has DRLs as standard!

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
