    Hi

    I would really like it if you could specify multiple custom intro videos. For example:
    1. Static video welcoming you to my theatre.
    2. Dynamic video depending on audio format.
    3. Dynamic video depending on video format.
    4. Dynamic video informing of the age limit.



    As I understand it now I can only specify one static or dynamic video or a folder where it chooses one at random.

    Thanks for a great plugin :)

    I guess this answers the question that I was going to ask. Is there any consideration for this? I am a former "my movies" MCE user and it had a very nice intro movie engine; where the end-user can select a folder where your intro movies or trailers are stored. You can set the intro to play in numerical order or randomized order.

    I really need to be able to play two sequential intro movies and it was a piece of cake in My Movies. Is the Dev addressing the lack of intro options? BTW, I really love the plugin, it is beautiful, speedy, and quite functional. The only thing missing is the inability to play multiple intro movies.[DOUBLEPOST=1373477456][/DOUBLEPOST]PS, The Cinema Experience for XBMC is pretty awesome too.

    Check the advanced settings, you can setup a trailer folder and use audiocodec and other info to play a selection of trailers. Multiple is also possible. I stopped using the feature myself, but look at wiki and settings, and you should be able to figure out a way to get what you want.

    Can intro video = video playlist file?

    Then you can do

    c:\intro\{$audiocodec}.{$videocodec}.{$videoresolution}.{$certification}.playlist

    Then create a playlist for every combination pointing to your selection of videos for each parameter. (I can't remember playlist extension ;) )
