2.79 how to view videos on planes in the viewport?

So, i have a video clip in blender, imported using “Images as Planes” and in Cycles rendered preview mode, the video plays out when you hit play on the timeline, but in material mode it does not. I saw some tutorials for this but none of them seemed to work with cycles 2.79?

It’s working for me - using material view and the “auto refresh” button ticked in the material nodes.
