Mind being a little more specific about what the problem you're having is?

Is the video not playing? Do you know what to put in the script to attempt to play the video?

This is my code:

$ renpy.movie_cutscene("Intro.mpg")

Is there a problem with the code?

There's nothing wrong with the code you posted above by itself. The only thing that comes to mind are:
1) Is the video in the folder it's supposed to be in? and
2) Is the video playable by itself outside of Ren'Py? It's not corrupted or anything like that? Do you have a movie player installed on your computer?

I've used very early builds of Ren'Py so I don't know if this is relevant anymore but as far as I know, movies weren't possible in the splashscreen block. You can double check this by putting your video in the main build of the game. If it plays in there, then you know for sure that you cannot add videos to the splashscreen. If it does not play, then it goes back to the questions I asked you above. If it still does not play after that, then I suggest you download the latest version of Ren'Py and try again.

1) Yes, it is in the Game Directory.

2)Yes, i isnt corrupted, also, I have 2 movie players.

Furthermore, no matter where a put my video, it doesnt play no matter what i do (even with the latest version).
