From what I understand, the only way to run the video player from Pymedia is to use a specially patched pygame (that adds the much needed set_data method).
This is a bit deceptive, as the installation tutorials only mentions "pygame 1.7+".
The special version of pygame is only available as:
- a source of the patch;
- a patched binary for Python 2.3.
Now if set_data is so useful, wouldn't it be good to have it added to the main branch of pygame library? Have the pygame developers seen the source?

I have sent patch with the only display() function for Overlay and it is working the same way as set_data(). So you can use 1.6.1+ version of pygame from their site. The only change is to call display instead of set_data.

set_data() is usefull when you want to do some manipulation with the Overlay such as Picture-In-Picture, OSD, text whatever if video card does not support putting hi res images over overlay....
