DV AVI frame extraction with Python?

Can anybody point at package for Python that can allow to open DV AVI
file and extract frames from it? Preferrably frames should be
converted into PIL images or saved as files in one of the standard
formats.

It seems like pyMedia can probably do this. If it's so, can anybody
point at code samples for AVI manipulation in pyMedia? Unfortunately
the documentation seems to be very skimpy.

Thank you

You can use ffmpeg (which pymedia is based on) to convert the file
to a motion jpeg (tell it use extension mjpeg). A motion jpeg file
is roughly each frame as a seperate jpeg image all concatenated together.

Thank you, Roger. It could be a solution. But I would still try to
find conversion as lossles as possible.

Hi colleagues, this is my second attempt to get rid of the f_tstate field in frames. I need to find every user of this field. What am I talking about? Well, Python always has a thread state variable which is a unique handle to the current thread. This variable is accessed in many places, and there exists a fast macro to get at it.

Dear Python community, since I didn't get *any* reply to this request, either the request was bad or there is really nobody using f_tstate in a way that makes it urgent to keep. I will wait a few hours and then make the change to Stackless, and I'd like to propose to do the same to the Python core.

Hi, I am still new to Python and Tkinter, so I apologize in advance if I do not word my question optimally. I am trying to use a frame widget as the parent for other widgets.

Then, I grid this widget and issue the command "classinstance =...
