if you use eventghost you can start a fullscreen video with "sm player" when opening xbmc
so it's not an intro video in your skin but it look the same...

you could add
Code:
<onload condition="Window.Previous(startup)">XBMC.PlayMedia(special://skin/intro.mp4)</onload>
to your home.xml and place the intro named intro.mp4 in your skin root folder
will probably break startup playlist feature and doesn´t work too good when the "Adjust display refresh rate to match video" setting is set.

That's pretty sweet man! I'm definitely going to give it a try tonight.

Thanks for the d/l link


EDIT: If you want to get rid of the splash screen altogether so that you only see the intro video, add the following to advancedsettings.xml
Code:
<splash>false</splash>

*If I helped, please +rep below*
Windows Media Center PVR add-on (pvr.wmc) and Server (ServerWMC)
The XBMC team, plug-in devs, skinners, etc. do this for us for FREE in their spare time because they want to. Think about that for a second before you start bitching...

Why not make a windows bootscreen of this?
That must be fantastic, is it possible?
