SWIG typemap

I don't think your typemap is having any effect. Shouldn't it be:
%typemap (in) FILE * {
or similar? The one you have looks like it will match input arguments
of type 'file', which isn't even a real type in your interface.

Here's one of mine that works. It's a little different, since
it matches a specific argument name as well as type:
%typemap(python,in) uint8_t *buffer {
  $1 = (uint8_t*)($input);
extern int dv_parse_header(dv_decoder_t *dv, const uint8_t *buffer);
