Help w/ converting videos to SMK

I got rad video tools, got a video file w/ mpeg4 codec and tried to convert it to smk. The conversion worked well, but when I made a install.exe with that video, the game crashed saying that the video file wasn't found.

I opened the file w/ WinMPQ and the file was on its place.

Anyone can help me w/ this? I kinda wanna put a smk file kinda the ones of starcraft RIP game.

The first thing is: you need a really old smacker tools package (I think the newest one does not work properly)

The second thing is: SMKs CANNOT be compressed inside the MPQs. Plase make sure you are adding them uncompressed.

If compression auto-selection is enabled (which it probably was), then it was added uncompressed.
