Default PC Startup and videos

I was wondering if it would be possible to play a video evertime my pc starts up. Any help would be appreciated.

After the login screen? In the registry under machine, currentversion, software, ms, windows, run, - enter the file here as a new value and that should do it.

Thaat location is roughly correct by the way, haven't checked it in a while

I'd back up all critical data before you attempt it.

It is possible, but to to honest after awhile you'll get tired of seeing that video and you'll want the rest of windows to load. I know there is a way cause i have done something like that, only it was an animated cartoon.
