How to import SFM movies into Sourcemods
There are several examples of SFM movies being used in Source Games. The cutscenes from Portal 2, the portal 2 ending song, and the Half-Life 2: Episode 2 beginning intro (Plus, I think, the Gman Cutscene in ep2). How do I import movies into a sourcemod? (Namely, an ep2 or portal 2 mod).

The Episode 2 GMan chat was all in-engine scripting magic.

It was? I thought that the overlay of Gman (You know-- Gman in the background, then a foating face right in front of you) didn't look like it was rendered in-game. I'm probably wrong, though ;)

I just looked at the startup videos page... so videos can't be imported throughout the game, only at the beginning and end?

Half-Life 2 has special-case entities to handle this (see HL2's intro) that SFM doesn't.

Depending on what entities are present in your engine version you might be able to cheat with vgui_movie_display. Maybe there's another way, but you'd best off asking Source SDK modders since SFM's involvement in the process ends at laying off a video file.
