Default Video interface

I fancy myself a pretty capable when it comes to troubleshooting but no matter what I do I can't get video to launch in the background during a song.

I edited the .sm and pasted the video.avi &.mp4 titles respectively between the colon and semicolon in both the #BACKGROUND and #BGCHANGES sections of the script...

The video file is in the song folder but still no dice, any suggestions? I also deleted the .scc
Some people suggested syncing the video and the song together but apart from that I'm clueless

Its been a long time since i went manually editing .sm files

Did you include the offset after your bgchanges?

Edit: correction//hopefully this'll get you where you wanted to be

;
#BGCHANGES:0.000=youravihere.avi=1.000=1=0=0,
;


if its out of sync, probably just adjust the ms (0.000 in the example) to match the offset of your first beat, or trial and error /shrug

Nobody seems to have the right answer for this... what am I doing wrong?

You dont have any previous versions of the sm cached in appdata, do you?

iirc SM5 used to do that

Not sure. How do I delete the previous versions?
I think I should note that I reload the songs from the options tab every time before I check if it worked.

Windows: %APPDATA%/StepMania 5.0/ (Example: C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\StepMania 5)
Linux: ~/.stepmania-5/ (Example: <User>/.stepmania-5)
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/StepMania 5/ and/or ~/Library/Preferences/StepMania 5/ (I am not a Mac user so, I can't explain this. Probably similar to Linux though.)

Still nothing! There wasn't even any appdata to delete... maybe I'm not editing the song settings correctly in the game.
What's the protocol for that?

modern simfile creation is done in either DDReamstudio or ArrowVortex, I can't tell you I know whether or not adding videos is possible in either, though.

https://arrowvortex.ddrnl.com/

Chances are you can't. Don't let the dissuade you from downloading them though, if you're making files these are the best friends you'll ever have

Sorry you're still having issues here, it seemed straight forward but something was obviously overlooked... I'm too tired to function so I wish you luck dude. hopefully someone experienced with this can lend a hand, peace

No sweat! Thanks anyway you helped a lot. I'm not super familiar with a lot of stepmania jargon so any leads are sincerely appreciated!
