How to get videos working:



In order to get videos working, you’ll need to convert them first with your PC. You can use ffmpeg to do this task with the following commands:

ffmpeg -i Logo.mpg Logo.mp4
ffmpeg -i GTAtitles.mpg GTAtitles.mp4

The videos are in the movies folder and the original one in mpg format can be safely removed after the conversion.
