with the new 3.0 version i managed to implement a video splashscreen to my RetroPie.
Everything is working fine except the sound. I do not seem to get any sort of sound, no matter how loud my speakers are. I am using the 3.5 mm audio jack with usb speakers, which are working fine for all the ingame music, but not for the boot video :/ (I have already set the 3.5mm audio jack to the default sound device in the Audio settings). Any ideas? Thanks 🙂
Ok a little update: I tried encoding the video into a couple of formats but none of them had any sound playing. When i try the omxplayer -o local file.video command to play the video from the command line, i do actually get to hear the sound very clearly. So how do i tell the rpi to do the same when booting up?
I would like to understand one thing … Can you hear the sounds while playing ?if so you just have to set omxplayer to redirect the output relay to audio output mini jack . To do that you have to add , in the configuration file of the splash screen , the option -o local after the command omxplayer. The configuration file is located in /etc/asplashscreen. You can try to modify it with nano. sudo nano -w /etc/asplashscreen

Umm yeah playing it with the command you told me I totally hear the sound!!! 😀
I wanted to try out configuring the file but i cannot seem to find anything in /etc that is called asplashscreen :p
EDIT: just found it in /home/pi/retropie-setup/scriptmodules … Just testing it now 🙂
Edit2: okay i tried that out, but that has still not worked, maybe the config file in the /scriptmodules directory is outdated and a new one is supposed to be at the location you told me, which i cannot find?
