Create an atl animation or a movie and put it on the main screen (in screens.rpy).

you can make a real video-background:

Code: Select all

# script.rpy
init python:
 style.mm_root.background = None
 
init:
 image movie = Movie(size=(config.screen_width, config.screen_height)) # stretch to windowsize

label main_menu:
 scene movie
 $ renpy.music.play("vid.ogv", channel="movie", loop=True) # short video with/without audio
 $ renpy.music.play("muz.mp3", channel="music", loop=True) # long song (you can delete this if you have music in video)
 jump main_menu_screen
 
label start:
 stop movie #!!! YOU MUST STOP VIDEO
 $ renpy.music.stop #if you have a music - you can stop it too
