I've only used the sound parts of SMPEG, and I'm writing this from a 
computer that doesn't have SMPEG installed, so I'm not really qualified 
to answer, but I can try... :-)

You can set the volume of an individual SMPEG instance with 
SMPEG_setvolume(), if that's what you mean. I doubt there is any way for 
SMPEG to manipulate the actual system mixer settings, though I guess SDL 
may be able to.

Doesn't the included "gtv" application do these things? SMPEG_getinfo() 
should be able to tell you the current frame, and other things besides that.

I have no idea. As far as I know there hasn't been much new development 
of SMPEG for quite some time now, so I wouldn't hold my breath.

The only documentation/tutorials I'm aware of is the smpeg.h header file 
and the included plaympeg, gtv and glmovie examples.
