put your movie here:
xbmc/addons/skin.confluence/introMovie.mov

add this line to xbmc/addon/skin.confluence/720p/Startup.xml:
Code:
<window>
    <onload>PlayMedia(special://skin/introMovie.mov)</onload>

eeps...

put your movie here:
xbmc/addons/skin.confluence/introMovie.mov

Means to put your video into the folder 'skin.confluence' NOT a sub folder.....if you're unsure put it in more than one spot...

With the name 'introMovie.mov'

edit the Startup.xml using cut&paste techniques....

That would take some coding in the XBMC source.

Not source but xbmc skin. There is an addon in the passion report that will let you play a random intro but only glass supports it.

How to use Git
| AMD Athlon II X3 Triple Core Processor 2.9 GHz |GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H Mobo 2GB DDR2 Ram | MSI N430GT |
| Logitec Harmony One Remote| 52" Sharp Aquos LED TV | Demon AVR-X1000 |

Yeah, the skin can do it, but I think there's some timing issues as the main code is launching and may display other things first. That's where you'd need to modify the main program, Things happen simulataneously.

So who wants to make an XBMC Wiki page that lists all these kick ass intro movies and maybe a little how-to on making them work?

put your movie here:
xbmc/addons/skin.confluence/introMovie.mov

add this line to xbmc/addon/skin.confluence/720p/Startup.xml:
Code:
<window>
    [b]<onload>PlayMedia(special://skin/introMovie.mov)</onload>[/b]

does it matter where it goes in the startup.xml?

yes, put it on the second line, right below <window>,
so it's started before anything else.

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>
