  • Very little information here to work with. What EmulationStation version are you on? Etc. What RetroPie image are you running?

    Still, have you tried enabling OMX Player on the "other settings" menu?

    What video format and resolution are you running? Is it all videos, only some?

    Best.

    3rd party images aren't supported here for a number of reasons. This image in particular seems to be loaded with pirated ROMs. Associating RetroPie with the distribution of pirated material puts the entire project at risk. Please seek out help wherever you downloaded the image from, or start fresh with a new image. If you choose the latter, anyone here will be more than happy to help with any issues you may have.



  • @mediamogul missed that - thanks.



  • @pjft sorry I didnt know i really wanted some help thank you
