I'm searching any way to render with ffmpeg, an opengl texture that contains the video frame.

Actually, I am not good with ffmpeg... Is there any library/documentation or something? How can I render a video with ffmpeg to opengl?

Example implementation with basic demos: http://code.google.com/p/openmedialibrary (opengl/openal frontend to an ffmpeg backend)
