[osg-users] Adding code for movie textures

I've been trying to find a way to get movie textures to play using only a 
.osg file as the input to osgviewer. From skulking around in the source 
code I figured out how "osgviewer --movie" plays movies on a polygon and 
took that idea and applied it to the texture handling source files in 

I added the following code to Texture1D.cpp, Texture2D.cpp, Texture3D.cpp 
and TextureRectangle.cpp:

#include "osg/ImageStream"


if (fr[0].matchWord("movie") && fr[1].isString())
 	std::string filename = fr[1].getStr();
 	Image* image = fr.readImage(filename.c_str());
 	ImageStream* imagestream = dynamic_cast<osg::ImageStream*>(image);
 	if (imagestream) {


So far it's worked. Is this something that's going to work out in the 
long run? Is there a better way for me to do what I've done?
