Best this you can do is buy a two post toggle switch, get the wire is telling you to connect to the e-brake, connect that wire on one of the post on the switch, and the other ground it to ground (car frame, ground wire, etc)...then read manual on how long you have to wait to activate video ....and it will be the same with the switch as it would be the e-brake...i have one my self...i have to wait 3 to 5 seconds...then it activates...
It uses a ground signal on off then back onn so i used a toggle switch for that. Runa ground through the switch then to the unit and when you go to play movies flip the switch on then off then back on.

Re: how to bypass video nav cd override
If its an aftermarket device, it has a sensor that is connected to the electronics of the vehicle to indicate that it is parked.
Check the wiring, find the wire and move it to something that is always on, radio, a/c controls, etc.
Best of Luck.

There should be a solenoid that releases when you press the brake pedal. The solenoid releases the lock that prevents you from shifting out of park unless you have applied the brakes.
So, either the brake switch is bad or the solenoid or the wiring.
BUT, sometimes (especially if the car was put into park without coming to a complete stop) the transmission will get a bit stuck - rocking the vehicle could help.
Inside the transmission there is a mechanical device called a parking pawl. When the transmission is put in to park this L shaped chunk of metal locks the output shaft from turning. This Pawl can break and become useless in stopping the vehicle from moving without the park brake on. What all this means is the pawl inside your transmission has stopped working. The part needs to be replaced to restore its operation.
Low or empty brake fluid . No red brake light lite . Brake line corroded maybe , where do you live ? Rust belt USA . Just had a similar problem in a 2005 chevy cavalier . Did you have to stop really fast ?
Are you saying that the car did not stop when you applied the brakes?
A vehicle does not automatically go into park when the brakes are applied. You have to manually put the vehicle in park with the shift lever.
If your car is not STOPPING when you apply the brakes - then this is a serious problem with the BRAKES!
Yes, there is a way to watch a movie without the parking brake engaged. The parking brake safety mechanism is there for a reason, and I do not suggest that you disable this sytem so that you can watch movies while driving. With that said, the simplest way to bypass the parking brake system is to take the parking brake wire from the head unit, run a wire to a chassis ground point, and then put a toggle switch inline so that you can flip it on and off. This will simulate the engaging/disengaging of a parking brake.
Again, I do not condone or recommend watching movies while driving. There are enough distracted people driving on the roads.
