Have a look at the wires on the rear and front speakers - that'll sort them out, leaving the power and earth which I think is red and brown.  Attach the parking brake to the earth - you will be able to watch a DVD whilst moving.  HOWEVER this is illegal so make up your own mind on this. The proper way to connect it to the handbrake.
