I have had success in the past randomizing things that weren't intended to be random using a script. Keep all of your startup videos in one folder. Set Kodi to use a generic named video (IE introvid.avi) in a location NOT in your folder of startup videos. Write a script or bat file to choose a random video from the startup video folder and copy (overwrite) the introvid.avi with the random file. You would then have the script or bat file launch Kodi.

This would be sooooo awesome!

Animated weather icons, loading icons, moving backgrounds, complicate animated skin elements..... the possibilities are endless.
Any reason why there is no progress since fall 2014? I would love to see this feature.

Supporting something like APNG would even better Tongue

Lots of requests and very few coders. I'm sure they would welcome your help.Nod

Yes those patches would add initial support for animated GIF images as skin backdrops and for GUI textures in skins, which very cool indeed!

Yes even better, animated GIF support being merged into mainline might also open people eyes to APNG (Animated PNG) and/or MJPEG (Motion JPEG) support too.

Going for video in gui I think this is the better option, https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/5575

But animated backgrounds should be doable with gifs in gui already no? I mean we support gifs in images and its the same control afaik?

Unfortunately no, not Animated GIFs, not even under the Pictures section in Kodi because Animated GIFs are displayed as still images and not played as videos. At least not afaik?

Adding animated GIF support and other animated image format support in GUI is what Ace and Memphiz has been working on here http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=141442

Well if it could playback videos in GUI with FFmpeg then it should in theory be able "playback" all animated image formats as videos as well, as long as FFmpeg supports them too, right?

Again see discussion about video backdrops here http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=157585

Also note that the latest FFmpeg does now support decoding Animated GIF, Animated PNG (APNG), Motion JPEG (MJPEG), and Animated WebP images.

But even if support for videos in GUI was added, what then about supporting displaying multiple videos or animated images at the same time to display animated backdrops and posters?

We had a number of "demo" videos running during the Southern California Linux Expo this last weekend, and mixed into the playlist of those videos were various animations from this thread (I think nearly all of them as of last weekend). It really made our booth look awesome to have those animated logos pop up on screen!

Thank you to our awesome community for doing these, and keep the submissions coming!

This is really cool. I got to know by the current RPi built, which already includes one of the animations.

One thought - how will the splash animation play along the splashscreen? With regards to colors used and overall color scheme. I am on Isegard built now and the splash animation does not go well together with the splash screen.

Any idea on the direction you guys want to take this for the future? Also, has a decision been taken to include an animation at some point in the future?

Yeah kodi comes alive with animation!
A lot more eye candy!
It would rock.
Is this planned for kodi isengard?
Reply
I´ll ask it differently :
Is there a chance it comes with isengard?
If so, how big is that chance ? Smile
Reply
There's always a chance someone outside the Team will be inspired to make the changes, but for that to happen in time for Isengard then I don't think it's likely, there's probably more chance of us selling out to Microsoft for inclusion in Windows 10 Wink

There is but we have more important things to fix/do than some "silly" boot animation.
