Hey guys. I need some help with pre-rendered cutscenes playing in my hammer map for my Source Mod. I tried "vgui_movie_screen" or some shit like that but that only works for Portal 2. Can anyone help?

I'm talking about pre-rendered. Like from Source Filmmaker

If you are trying to play a pre-rendered cut scene mid map, you can't.

You can play a video at the end or beginning of a map with a .cfg file.
Here are the 2 CVARs for video playing:
playvideo  : cmd  :  : Plays a video: [width height]
playvideo_exitcommand  : cmd  :  : Plays a video and fires and exit command when it is stopped or finishes:

I don't understand. Do I edit the chapter .cfg's and add one of those code templates? or just create a separate file? Secondly which part in one of those code templates do I enter the directory for my cut scene in?
