Apricot / 2.47 / 2.46 Video mapped to Face?

Hey, I realize there’s a plugin that allows playing video on texture for an older version of Blender, but I was wondering if there were any newer or alternative methods for the apricot and more recent builds? I’d like to be able to play a video without exiting the game engine or interrupting gameplay :slight_smile:

If possible, I’d love to be able to use VLC or Mplayer on a face, as it would allow me to use nearly any format I’d like.
