This was also suggested by Bastiaan.
I thought we were avoiding threads, but if everyone is ok with
it I will inspect possibilities for it. Actually a thread would
be a convenient solution as the thread could be removed as soon
as the movie is fully loaded.

The only problem I can think of is at frame-advance time, in case the next
frame has not been loaded yet. We'd likely want to render the frame as soon
as it's loaded rather then skip the operation and wait next 1/FPS seconds.
