There is now a wiki page explaining how to change the splash screen (starting with RetroPie 3.0):
In short once you’ve opened the splash screen menu from the retropie menu in emulationstation or from the setup script a folder will be created:
This folder can be accessed through samba shares over the network.
you may need to install/restart samba shares from option 3 in the setup script in order for it to show up on samba shares
Create a new folder within the folder that was just created and place your new splash screen in it.
Then select the folder you just created from the second option in the splash screen menu.
Upon reboot your splash screen should now show up.claytonbeaubienParticipant10/09/2015 at 06:04Post count: 7

After I select the video folder in “Select custom splashscreen” and it says splashscreen set to video, I reboot my Pie and when its booting I notice the code …splashscreens/video not found. If i Winscp to my Pie I find the folder I created deleted. Any suggestions?senkunParticipant03/13/2016 at 10:46Post count: 35
for the life of me, I cannot get video splashscreens to work. Never got it to work on my Pi 2, today I received my new Pi 3,
installed a fresh copy of Retropie 3.6 on it,
created a new folder named “video” in /home/pi/RetroPie/splashscreens
put a short 500Kb .mp4 video in it,
selected the folder “video” from the second option in the splash screen menu,
and just got bootup text. No video. On my Pi 2 when I tried it, I got video on first restart and then it just stopped showing thereafter. On my new Pi 3 I don’t even see it at all.
Am I the only one with this issue? Can anyone help?starblankParticipant03/31/2016 at 23:12Post count: 3
I’m not an expert but i would like to help. The video playing relies con omxplayer (and runs at boot by /etc/init.d/asplashscreen service), so try playing the video on commandline
If it doesnt play, copy here the error/debug message please, if any, i think its a good start for finding out the problem.
You should also make sure the problem isnt the video by using a tested one (you can download any of the available in this forum). Have you tried a .PNG splash? Does it works?
