natviely playing mp4 video using rim:splash before loading a webworks application

hi,

in my application, before loading my home.html, i need to play a video.

but now a new requirement came up to play a  video before loading content of home.html.

but rim:splash supports only gif,png etc. but not MP4 video.

You should handle that in the logic of your app, not in the built-in splash screen.

I usually use some kind of overlay like a lightbox, and I add some elements there, like video etc.

I marked andreyavram's response as the solution as you can not play a video within the splashscreen and it must be handled within the application itself. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
