thanks

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>

ok so you are telling me that i need to add or create a folder call introMovie.mov to what ever skin im trying to set up...once i add the folder i need to drop my movies intro in there..Second i need to add this line <onload>PlayMedia(special://skin/introMovie.mov)</onload> to the startup.xml

cool question where do i get the intro movies?
Thank you ronie but nothing is working maybe if someone could make a video on how to set this up it would be much better I'm not traying to be a paint in the @$) but I'm getting frustrated here and nothing is working for me I have a atv2 and also windows if some one could make a video I would be grate...thank you guys
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....
Thank patk and ronie I finally got it to work. One question said I have multiple intro video and I want to romdenly play a video everytime I open xbmc how I do that? I now there is a script for glass skin but there I code to make it work for other skins?

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.

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?

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.
Thanks mate.

working ok now, could never get it to work before.

i can see the menu for about a second before it plays any way round that?

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>
Excellent ronie - beats changes to source to avoid this issue Wink
