I'm working on a simple movie and music player, based on SDL. I looked at the wotsit.org information on loading AVI files, and it looks increadibly convoluted. Also, their info isn't layed out very well on this subject. I was wondering if anyone can point me to either a really good resource on loading common movie file formats, or to a library of some sort (this is in C++) that could accomplish this easily. Thanks!

Yeah, I took a look at that. It uses some library called, I think, Video for Windows. My goal is to keep this program cross-platform, if possible, and I think that something called "Video for Windows" probably isn't [grin]. I'm also looking for something that will support more than just AVI, but all the same, thanks!

Any other suggestions would be awesome.
