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.
