Hi, basically smpeg support is there on windows (talking about the library aka dll). But the bindings to it (SDL::SMPEG) has never felt much love so its still pre-alpha state. We made tests at least a year ago and playing videos was like one frame per second.
So if you are interested in that you may need to fiddle around with it, but we are there to help and guide.
