Getting Issues when enabling video previews
I have scraped all the video's for my Amiga collection and enabled video previews. When I do that the theme appears like this. I have tried a few themes and they are all the same and checked they are video compatible. I'm using the latest clean install of retropie and it's a raspberry pi 3b+. Any help much appreciated.
@drittz78 This looks like the theme doesn't support the
videotype of gamelist view. What theme are you using ?
@mitu I tried Workbench
@drittz78 Does the same thing happens with the default theme (Carbon) ? I don't think that the
Workbenchtheme supports the video type of gameview.
@mitu no I didn't. I did try another theme but that was the same. I will give the default theme a go tonight. Gutted if work bench doesn't work as it's an amiga only setup.
@mitu spot on the default works. Bit gutted Workbench doesn’t work with videos but might have a mess on and see what themes do work. Thanks for your help.

@drittz78 There's an Amiga theme for the frontend Attract Mode (AM) that's in Retropie's experimental packages (#800 in the list). Maybe this is something for you, if you don't shun the effort to learn how to configure AM.
Amiga Memories (including a link to a demo on YouTube)
AM is extremely configurable since it's themes are written in a complex scripting language called squirrel. 🐿️ Read more about it on http://attractmode.org/
I used to know AM very well before Retropie and Emulation Station came into my life and served my lazyness so well that it won over my inner tinker for the time being.
Just my two cents about an alternative for your Amiga project.
@Clyde Thanks Clyde I'll have a look. Cheers for the heads up.
