Let us know what help you need:
Added some custom commands which call (alert file.mp4). Some of them stop after a few seconds. I tried mp4 and webm. Both are stopping too soon.

My initial guess is that the default duration is 3 seconds. You have to override the duration time. You can do this by providing the duration after the filename in the command.

For 10 seconds:
(alert file.mp4,10)

See if this helps, and let us know if it doesn’t. Warning: I may be thinking of audio files and this is not the issue at all.

You are right, it was the default duration time. Your solution fixed my problem. Thank you very much!
