    I want to use an MP4 video in place of the layers. I am currently using:

    Moghunter custom title screen: https://atelierrgss.wordpress.com/rmv-custom-title-screen/

    I found this, but it doesnt seem to work. As in, I can't even select the video I want, so I think it became incompatible due to updates.

    Plugin: https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/iavra-video-title.52681/

    Is there anyway someone can help me out? I have a beautiful animation. We have tried to do it with frames, but to get the right beauty, we need a lot... like... a gig. Video, much easier if I can just push it in there.

    Thank you!

    I tried v1.01 of Iavra's plugin and it only showed a static image. However, the v1.02 version posted by Cr1t1cal works for me:

    Notes:
    1. After double-clicking the parameter in the Plugin Manager, switch to the Text tab and enter your video's filename without the extension. E.g. I named my test video small.webm, so I put small as the parameter value.

    2. Go to Database > System and make sure your Title Screen Images (bottom-right) are set to (None), or at least something with transparency. This is because the video will display underneath them.

    3. You'll need your video in .webm format for desktop (either playtest or deployed versions). mp4 is for mobile platforms, and can be omitted if you're not planning on deploying to mobile. You will see the same issue attempting to play your mp4 video via the Play Movie event command: webm is expected on non-mobile platforms.

      I don't know of an easy way around this; I tried naively forcing the file type to mp4, but that just resulted in an endless loading screen. :kaoslp:
    In case it helps, here's a link to a list of small videos I used for testing the plugin~
