Plays a matlab movie



Plays the movie frames movieframes
n times at frmprsc frames per second
The default values for n and frmprsc are 1 and 2 frames per second movieframes can also be a filename of a .mat file containing the movie frames
The name of the variable does not matter as long as there is only one variable

If option is equal to 'slider' a slider is placed at the bottom of the figure which allows for sections to be played.
If option is equal to 'fullscreen' the movie frames are displayed in a full screen type mode, otherwise frames are displayed in true size.
When using the fullscreen model and the movie ends, press any key to close the figure.
More than one option can be used at the same time.

I wasn't able to get this to work on 2009b. I had to modify line 120 to update it to current standards. I now get improper matrix reference at line 153. Unclear why this should be the case.
