    Hi. I have an issue where I have a folder (c:\hddemo\) filled with intro videos, but when I input that path as the custom intro path, no videos show ever. If I input a file (ie c:\hddemo\demo1.mt2s) that file plays fine every time.

    Is there something I am missing to have moving pictures randomly choose a file from the folder? They are all of the same extension (.m2ts) maybe I can input a wild card to get a random video to play?

    Do you have m2ts included in your video extensions list (this is defined in MediaPortal)? Also an intro will only play when you are starting a movie from the beginning. If there is any resume data then it will skip the intro.

    Yes, I just checked and m2ts is included in file extensions. I am starting multiple movies for the first time and can never get a video to show. My directory is c:/hddemo. I am inputting it as c:\hddemo and c:\hddemo\ Am I missing something?

    Sounds to me like things should be working. Could you post debug log files?
