Pyffmpeg works well. In windows is very difficult to compile (therefore you
have to rely on the binary, and the webpage only provides it for python
2.6), in linux I think it was better, can't recall. Ffms is quite new
apparently, looks nice, color space is a bit messy, I have only tested the
binary for 2.7, they have also for 3.2. These both support precise frame
seeking. Yet another one based on ffmpeg is pymedia. This also works fine,
the seeking function is not so good though. Binaries for windows are
avaiable from Gohlke's webpage. Compiling with py2exe or cx_freeze: works
for pyffmpeg, but not for ffms.
I think all these support decoding but not encoding.
If you need more details let me know.

Any ideas on how this could slot in to the current plugin API?
Good point! If the number of video backends grows we should definitely be reusing the plugin infrastructure.
I've only scanned the source for video support. Do you foresee any sticking points with adding video to the plugin framework?
