    Hi.

    I’d like to play a video of every game after selecting it and before it runs.

    How could I do it?

    I have renamed every video exactly as every rom file, but I do not know what command I must use to play them…

    Thanks!

    You could probably write bash scripts to address this and edit emulationstations launch commands. I’d check the emulationstation documentation. Instead of launching the appropriate rom, you launch a script which plays the video in a player and then when complete launches the rom. Though I’d think that the video player is going to want to launch inside X so that could be a bit (read: a lot) tricky.

    I was wrong, don’t need X

    Thanks, omxplayer works well.

    Now I have to code the command line to launch the video and afterwards the game…
