Re: [pygame] Re: Movie module being merged

Okay, I'll do those in a couple of days. To enable multiple movie playback, I'd have to go a layer deeper and use SDL_Audio directly, as there is no way to store a void * reference to the movie object with SDL_mixer. Thanks. :)

ah, yeah.  Good to keep that coupling low.  I guess it would need one
of those for each movie instance.

Or for now, we can just limit movie playback to one at a time... and
change it later to support multiple movies in the future.  That's the
main use case anyway.

ok, that sounds good.

yeah, I think just raising an exception if the supplied surface is the
wrong size is fine.  That's something that could be added later
