I would like to use VLC in my program to play a movie. I want to be able to use VLC with OpenGL to be able to play movies in our project. Can I use VLC to do this? We'd like to use VLC over smpeg and PyMedia. Any ideas are welcome.

Has anyone ever used VLC in their games? Could we use this to play an intro movie in our program?

Ah yes, I did see that tutorial. Isn't avi files though patented? Our project is going to use ogg vorbis and ogg theora and is cross platform. The reason I want to use VLC is that I believe I wouldn't have to change any of my code to get it working on Linux, Mac, and Windows, just a recompile. We might play an avi if we can't play ogg theora.

Thank you though UndeadInsanity for the link. :)
