for the life of me, I cannot get video splashscreens to work. Never got it to work on my Pi 2, today I received my new Pi 3,

installed a fresh copy of Retropie 3.6 on it,

created a new folder named “video” in /home/pi/RetroPie/splashscreens

put a short 500Kb .mp4 video in it,

selected the folder “video” from the second option in the splash screen menu,


and just got bootup text. No video. On my Pi 2 when I tried it, I got video on first restart and then it just stopped showing thereafter. On my new Pi 3 I don’t even see it at all.

Am I the only one with this issue? Can anyone help?
