That link is a youtube "ripper:, it will grab the video file off the link that was in http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1036085 which you said you wanted to get.

Or if you have the video then what bit are you stuck at? The instructions seem pretty straight forward but where have you got to so far?

Just a quick side note is stuff like that allowed from a your stealing stuff of youtube/privacy point of view?

Set Up
Raspberry Pi running Raspbmc - XBMC 12.2
40" Samsung ES6800 LED Smart 3D 1080P TV
Onkyo HTS3405 5.1 DD True HD and DTS-HD Surround Sound

Depends on the system you are using. Also it might it might not exist yet as it is a user created file:
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Use...ttings.xml might be a good place to have a read for more info on it.

working ok now, could never get it to work before.

i can see the menu for about a second before it plays any way round that?

Matt
here's a minimal Startup.xml for Confluence that will delay the loading of the home screen by 1 second.
you can adjust the value (it's in milliseconds) of the delay to your own liking.

Code:
<window>
    <onload>PlayMedia(special://skin/introMovie.mov)</onload>
    <defaultcontrol always="true">10</defaultcontrol>
    <allowoverlay>no</allowoverlay>
    <controls>
        <control type="button" id="10">
            <onfocus>ReplaceWindow(Home)</onfocus>
            <texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
            <texturefocus>-</texturefocus>
            <animation effect="fade" delay="1000" end="100">Focus</animation>
        </control>
    </controls>
</window>

so i just replace my startup.xml with thisw one?

Thanks again

Matt

I am hoping that stoli will integrate this addon into neon and metropolis skin. Great work on this.

ATV1 with crystalbuntu (12.2 frodo) as main theater. Theater remote URC MX-810, droidx with xbmc remote, or transformer tf101 with YATSE. 3 x ATV2 (V12.2 frodo).

Hi All,

I'm embarrassed I can't get this to work. The standard startup is disabled but I can't get the movie to play at all. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

1) I added an intro movie here
/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/Intro
2) Amended (confluence) startup.xml as below
<window>
<onload>PlayMedia(special://var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/Intro/IntroMovie.mov)</onload>
<defaultcontrol always="true">10</defaultcontrol>
<allowoverlay>no</allowoverlay>
<controls>
<control type="button" id="10">
<onfocus>ReplaceWindow(Home)</onfocus>
<texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
<texturefocus>-</texturefocus>
<animation effect="fade" delay="1000" end="100">Focus</animation>
</control>
</controls>
</window>
3) Disabled the startup splash using the script from here

^ there's you problem.
you can't just make up special:// paths :-)

try with <onload>PlayMedia(/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/Intro/IntroMovie.mov)</onload>
or <onload>PlayMedia(/private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/XBMC/userdata/Intro/IntroMovie.mov)</onload>

Ronnie, you beat me to it.

Btw, I finished working on an iPhone game titled Dummy Defense (shameless plug. Everyone check it out. I created the art and someone else handled the programming). Anyway I've got some free time and will be creating some more intro vids.
