    What are the settings for doing a video intro?
    Codec? MPEG4, H.264, WMV, AVI?
    Compatible Resolution?
    Length? 10 – 30 seconds???
    Does this just get dropped into the appropriate Splash Screen folder?

    Depends on which video player you are using and which version, also depends on which raspberry pi you have ( the RPI 2 boots quickly so you’ll have to code it to play all the way through first before emulation station starts if you don’t want emulation station cutting into your video) I’ve used .mp4, .mov, and .mkv. I had problems with .avi and some newer mp4s… Its kinda hit and miss- I converted my videos with a bunch of different settings in vlc until I found one that worked. Here’s a video of what I did to get it to work:
