As you may have already discovered, the new nVidia driver fixed the
problem, and glmovie.c works as written.  The only catch is that I
haven't managed to get sound to work on my system under Linux (onboard
CMI8738), and unless I disable sound in glmovie it doesn't play the
video.  I do that with the line

    SMPEG_enableaudio ( mpeg, 0 );

My guess is that glTexSubImage2D() in the earlier driver was faulty.
