[quote=82190]Try running just the
omxplayer -o hdmi –layer 10000 /home/pi/splash_screen_video.mp4 command from either the console/terminal or through SSH.
This will hopefully give a more specific error message. I think it is likely that there is a small difference between the location you are pointing to in the script and the actual filename and location. (maybe an extra “.” or space that you missed)
Yeah, this is weird.
Typing it in the command line it plays fine. Still won’t play on start up.
Going to start with a fresh sd card and try again from scratch.
