I added a video to replace the splashscreen, I made it 1:30 long. it loads and plays, but the emulation station screen still comes on, I can hear the music for my file playing in background. It all is timed right and such. I thought the movie would over write the emulation station screen but it dosent. I understand this is hardcoded, but thought the movie would show over it… did I do something wrong or is this the way it works now for 2.3? did I miss something?
If you are using omxplayer to play the video, you can use the --layer 10000 command option to get the video to play over the top of EmulationStation. Here is my command: omxplayer -o hdmi --layer 10000 /home/pi/splash_screen_video.mp4
