For WIndows you could use "DirectShow".

Reply-To: sdl at libsdl.org
I'm a developer trying to intregrate SDL into my program, but I'm beginning
to question the feasibility of what I want to do.
Basically, I'm creating a multi-platform application in which I would like
to display video windows and play MPEGs within them. From what I
understand, SDL was targetted for single-window and/or full-screen
applications, and it was NOT made for creating a simple overlay window
within a Gtk/Java/MFC window to play a video on (which is exactly what I'm
trying to do). I can position the video window just fine in Linux with X
windows but I can't find out how to position the video window in Windows.
Also, I would like to show more than one video window in my application at a
time (i.e. There's a video in the background, the user clicks a button to
load another video, and the new video is previewed in the new top window).
Does SDL have the capability to do this, even with a hack? Or is there any
other library which can give me a hardware overlay window in which I can
show a video in? I've researched these topics quite extensively and I'm
wondering if anyone else has given up and just used something else (which is
multi-platform mind you) or just done it with lots of hacks. Any input will
