how to get videos in LaunchBox

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've just become a premium member and I'd like to use the video feature in bigbox, I mean when I am on a certain game, see the intro and a video of the game in a small window. Just as shown on the introduction of the product.(

Thing is that I've already set +than2000 games in my LB folder and I'd like to import videos for all those games at once. Is it possible?

You need to pay for a premium emumovies subscription to get videos.

Or, if you have the patience, you can do a two-minute screen-recording of all your games, and then just put that video into the correct folder (as an example: launchbox/videos/NES/Super Mario Bros 3.mp4). This is what I do, but it is quite time consuming if you have a lot of games to do all at once.

Thanks , time or money^^btw how do you a screen recording?

There is actually quite a lot of software available such as fraps, OBS and bandicam. Windows 10 actually has a native screen recorder in their xbox app, called Game DVR.

any chance one of those programms is free?

If I take the premium version of emu movies, is it going to rescan and add vids for my games?

OBS and the Game DVR built into Windows 10 are free. I have not used Fraps but a quick hop to their website showed a free 'restricted" version and a paid "unrestricted" version.

You have to link your premium account in Launchbox then manually choose to rescan for videos. The media import wizard will have check boxes so you can uncheck image media and just leave the video boxes checked.
