Never used any, so =/
Did you look up Theora? Though this is exclusively for OGV videos, but I assume you have control over the format your game uses, right? =P There's WebM too (which is what YouTube will try to use when Flash is disabled). Yes, those two are specific formats, but for your case I suppose it'll do the job. The important part is that those two are free =D
Also, those libraries are generic, i.e. you'll need to decode the video (by calling them) and then use the decoded data with SDL on your own (in the case of SDL2 a streaming texture may be a good idea).
Don't pay much attention to "the hedgehog" in my nick, it's just because "Sik" was already taken =/ By the way, Sik is pronounced like seek, not like sick.
