class MovieVideo

Bases: TypedWritableReferenceCount, Namable

A MovieVideo is actually any source that provides a sequence of video frames. That could include an AVI file, a digital camera, or an internet TV station.

The difference between a MovieVideo and a MovieVideoCursor is like the difference between a filename and a file handle. The MovieVideo just indicates a particular movie. The MovieVideoCursor is what allows access.
