Can you use video snap files?

Looking through the forum here and it’s unclear to me if you can use video files for a preview of the game (after you selected the game.) I’ve got a bunch of .mp4 gameplay videos on my RetroPie and was wondering if I could use those in DIG. Is it possible?


  • Currently only if they are in .gif format. There is a video preview capability but it requires an internet connection as it streams snap files off of YouTube.

    Are there instructions you can point me to see where to copy the gif files?

    Also, is there a repository of gif format video snaps somewhere? Or I guess I could convert the mp4 videos I have on my RetroPie.

    Thanks for the info.

  • I found a post with the answer about video files/animated gifs - “The only other current alternative is to swap the files in the screenshots folder for equivalently named .GIFs.”
