I think that devs are waiting for the next version of SDL before they implement it.  You could always do it manually; blit a series of images to a surface, while playing the soundtrack using pygame's mixer module.  I did this (using ffmpeg to extract still frames / audio track, along with a script to try and remove redundant frames to reduce file size) to get some renpy games working on android and it worked pretty well.

Though mine isn't a commercial project, I'd be glad to kick in some $$ if that would help with the development, since I don't have time to help in any other way. So if anyone wants to develop this (add video support to the Pygame for Android subset), let me know.

As far as I know, video support is still missing for Pygame subset for Android.

Can anyone think of a way to work around this issue? Maybe a way to play video as an external process?

Or would it be hard to add video support to the Pygame subset for Android?
