 +**WARNING:** ultimately, those splash videos will be copied into your ''/boot/'' partition, which has limited space. Depending on your architecture, the sizes of your potential overlays and many other parameters, you might be limited to 100s of MB left on the ''/boot/'' partition, less than 1 GB in most cases. Make sure you don't put too many videos in your ''splash'' directory or the process will not work. 
 + 
 +You can have multiple ''*.mp4'' files in ''/splash/'' and the system will select one at random.
