Are they just not playing or do you not see them at all in the game details panel?

If you cannot see them at all you need to go into LB >Tools>Options and in the Visual section look for Game Details section. Check the box for “videos”.

Thank you! That's what i needed to do, check the box for videos. Now when i click on the thumbnail a video plays on the right side but it's in a very small window. Is it possible to have the video play where the thumbnails are as you can change the size and that would make the video much better viewable.

Retro808 - Thanks !!!

 I had the same question (I'm new to LaunchBox/BigBox too) - and your last solution fixed my/the issue

Can you make the window of the video bigger or to play in place of the thumbnail?

Thank you for the info, maybe in a future update we might get it.

Well as pointed out, you can edit that code. You dont have to wait for the dev to do so, as i suspect he has no interest in doing so, otherwise he would of designed it that way already. Thats not stopping anyone else from editing or creating a new theme with that look though.
