Pinnacle Studio 16. It's pretty cheap for its features.

Does anyone have a fix for video not loading at boot up?

Can you post your folder structure and where you've put your video?
Or better, the whole process you went through when you tried to activate splash screen video.

/home/pi/RetroPie/splashscreens/myvideo/myvideo.mp4

video is saved here. its in its own folder in the splashscreens folder. i have checked that the custom splashscreen is enabled. It loads some times but most of the time the screen just flashes black and the video wont play.... Not sure if its a memory issue or something?

So it DOES play, just not every boot?
Did you change anything before this reboot?
I have the feeling it only happens if you changed anything and then did a reboot.

It does play sometimes. I would say 9 times out of 10 it dosnt. I dont make any changes im rebooting hoping to see my video and nothing plays....

last post in the second link.....


This is exactly what fixed it for me:

sudo nano /etc/init.d/asplashscreen

and add
sleep 1
in between
rm -f /tmp/writable
and omxplayer -b --layer 10000 "$line"
10 restarts and still playing



going to give this a try when i get home

Thanks for that. Had the same problem. 9 out of 10 times it would launch. Sometimes not though.

Find your boot screen clip on youtube. I searched "Gameboy DMG bootup video" in google. Watch and make sure that it is what you need.
Use one of any number of youtube video converters for download. I personally use clipconverter.cc (here is the plug of "don't take anything that is copyrighted, pirated, doesn't rightfully belong to you, etc."). Go through the simple directions given there. They have options for a couple of different video formats, as well as a few audio only formats.

Repeat for any other console boot screen your heart desires.
So i noticed the file you provided has two frames of the title screen for a mario game at the end (i forgot which game). I took the liberty of removing those two frames so it's nice and clean.

File is here:
