I am looking for video monitors for the rear seat of my wife's SUV for the kids. I have found several headrest DVD options and the flip down screen options. I know most of the monitors will have DVD players and inputs for an external video source. What I want to know is are there any monitors with wifi streaming capability? I basically want to be able to play DVD's and stream video from either the internet via a mobile hotspot or from my GoFlex Satellite hard drive that creates its own wifi network to stream video. Or, if the wifi option is not available, are there any products that have USB input that will play videos from an external drive?

Not really. I have an iPad that I can mount to the headrests. I was looking for headrests with monitors built in, that have wifi connectivity to allow streaming from internet sources or hard drives.

www.onfair.com has many models that will read USB or SD memory cards and support a few media formats. I have recently put a pair of the 9" Autotain Dream monitors in my truck, and they accept up to a 32 GB USB or 32 GB SD, as well as DVD players, and external video inputs. The price is reasonable and the picture looks great.
