[SDL] SDL and Videos

Hi Francisco,
I don't know any SDL_video. But currently I'm working on my project which requires a video (alike) feature.
I'm using avisynth and blit with its API to SDL surface. Of course, this is not the most efficient way. I'm running a slide show. So the perfomance is good enough for me. But I doubt that you can bring it to 25/30 fps.
First, the down side of avisynth:
I only manage to get it compiled on MS compiler (that was forum's advice).
The good thing of avisynth, I can use all existing video effects in runtime. It's a scriptable video editing system. Therefore using it in realtime (preview mode) is not very efficient. But it's good enough for my slide show  :-)

Hi everybody!!!
I need to know if it is possible to reproduce a video in .avi or .mpeg
format with SDL or another library. I have seen that there are libraries
like SDL_ttf, SDL_mixer, SDL_image... but I have not found any library
related with videos in SDL...
Someone can help me?

It is possible to play a flash video?

Thanks everybody!!!
