Video Splash Screen Not Working Right

@synack Ok thanks a ton you were crazy helpful. I must have misunderstood one of those guides I read. I thought if I played a long enough video it would go right to the main menu.
If there's a way to mark this 'solved' I don't know how to do it but this is super solved.

@NecroCorey I believe that behavior (playing the video while the ES system loads) does work with some people's setups, but not all -- including my own. I'm not exactly sure of the details there.
My suggestion was mainly to address the issue you were having with the "screen going screwy" :-)
@synack I think another solution was to remove the layer setting (-b 10000 part)from the OMX call but is been a while since I've messed with it. There's probably a reference to it somewhere else on the forum

@synack hi, I had the same problem as well and tried this and it worked but will not boot into emulation station after. After the word "done" is there just a space or should there be something else?

nevermind, I got it. Had to make emulation station on the 2nd line

Sorry to bumb the topic, but I followed the instructions and what it does now, is that it won't start the EmulationStation automatically. After the video, it just shows the command console after logging in and I have to manully start the ES everytime.
Edit: It was not specified in the second post, that do I need to put those commands into different lines or do I have to keep them on the same line, but put the new one before the ES one ?

@dd-indeed Add an & symbol. like this.
sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/autostart.sh
while pgrep omxplayer >/dev/null;
do sleep 1;
sudo reboot now

i am also having the same issue.
im on emulation station v2.6.3RP
retropie set up script 4.2.22
i placed the files within the retropie folder/ splashscreen / comicbook splash using cyberduck (the same way i place everything else and no other issues)
and activating via retropie -> splashscreens -> own/extra -> select comicbook splash.
here a youtube link to the issue in action
sorry about the air conditioner, and audio

Instead of adding "&", add ";" as in:
while pgrep omxplayer >/dev/null; do sleep 1; done;
This worked for me.

@skoufix Thanks, the fixes above did not work for me but yours did. I'm glad to finally get rid of the startup glitch.
