I want to be able to pause, to stop, to backup, etc. a movie which will be loaded from a *.avi file. Yes, I know implay does all of that. However I need to create my own application (i.e. my own GUI for my specific needs) that does the pausing, stopping, backing up, etc. Can these functions be done to a movie started with movie() or will I have to write my own movie function?
Thanks a bunch, Bill

movie() will not be able to handle any of that.
You may wish to look through the MATLAB File Exchange, as there is a useful and hackable movie player there.

Thanks Walter
I saw a reference in one of the products on the MATLAB File Exchange to a program called "Interactive MATLAB Movie Player" by Don Orofino. However a search on that movie player returns no results. A Google search returns references to the program. But the download links at those sites just go to a MFE "program no longer available" page. Now I did find something called mplay at this site:
However I don't know if that is the same as the Interactive MATLAB Movie Player.
