I think the moral of the information here is each DVD player might require something different. To just say add power or add ground to keep it functioning while the car is in gear is assuming the player you have.

Directions and wiring diagrams specific for your unit that you purchase is the way to hook it up or circumvent turning off when in gear.

most work, when the parking brake is depressed it creates a ground and the DVD player operates normally, this is not the case for all players

and you will get pulled over of a cop sees a screen in your car with a movie or any movement on the screen, provided that the cop can see it. That is why the DVD is spuuosed to be operated when the parking brake is depressed
