Hi, I was searching for a good way to play movies on my engine (SDL/openGL) for (win/linux). I found "smpeg" wich gave me a lot of headaches, but i cant find anything better than this so i must deal with it. Its works fine on linux and not too fine on windows. I must activate SDL_OPENGLBLIT for SDl bliting operations for "smpeg" and i think that SDL_OPENGLBLIT isnt the best way so im trying to replace the blitting fuction on "smpeg" for a simple opengl texture and glswapbuffers and change SDL_OPENGLBLIT for SDL_OPENGL. The old fuction do this.
SDLMovieDrawIMG(SDL_Surface *img, SDL_Surface *dst, int x, int y)
    SDL_Rect dest;
    dest.x = x;
    dest.y = y;
    SDL_BlitSurface(img, NULL, dst, &dest);

I replace it whit this:
SDLMovieDrawIMG(SDL_Surface *img, SDL_Surface *dst, int x, int y)
   glGenTextures(1, &movie_texture);

    glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, movie_texture);
    glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGB, img->w, img->h, 0, GL_RGB, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, img->pixels);

    glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, movie_texture);

    glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 0.0f);
    glVertex3f(-1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f);
    glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 0.0f);
    glVertex3f( 1.0f, -1.0f, 0.0f);
    glTexCoord2f(1.0f, 1.0f);
    glVertex3f( 1.0f,  1.0f, 0.0f);
    glTexCoord2f(0.0f, 1.0f);
    glVertex3f(-1.0f,  1.0f, 0.0f);


    glDeleteTextures(1, &movie_texture);

I can see something but something extremelly bad, it seems like if the texture was repeated with blending at the same frame. The original SDL surface (SDLSurface *img) was create this way:

SDL_Surface *tempSurface2 = SDL_CreateRGBSurface( SDL_SWSURFACE, sdlmovie.movieInfo.width * sdlmovie.MaxScaleX, sdlmovie.movieInfo.height * sdlmovie.MaxScaleY, 32, sdlmovie.screen->format->Rmask, sdlmovie.screen->format->Gmask, sdlmovie.screen->format->Bmask, sdlmovie.screen->format->Amask );

// this is the SDLSurface *img
sdlmovie.movieSurface = SDL_DisplayFormat( tempSurface2 );

Any idea what im doing wrong?? Thanks in advance.
