  It's really not possible at the moment.  The Movie Library
  needs access to both the header/indexing information stored
  in the movie file, as well as the media data itself in
  order to play the movie.

  It may be possible to do this by passing a socket
  descriptor instead of a file descriptor.  There definitely
  is a problem of seeking to a particular frame.  If the whole
  movie is streamed in with no mvSetCurrentFrame() kind of
  calls, it may work.
