I am using Blender 2.71 and Ubuntu 14.04

I've got a module, external to Blender, installed thanks to its setup.py inside my /usr/local/lib/python3.4/dist-packages (the result of the build is an .so file).

After copying this one inside <my_blender_folder>/scripts/addons/ , it's working, but only when using the Embedded Player; When using the Standalone Player, the module is not found anymore. I've tried to copy the .so file inside the folder where the Blender executable is, but it's not found either.

Why is this module not being found, when using the Standalone Player?

The module, to be correctly found by the standalone player, must be placed inside <my_blender_folder>/2.71/python/lib/python3.4/.

So it's completely different from the embedded player (used normally by hitting p in the game engine) (which is <my_blender_folder>/2.71/scripts/addons/)

I finally found it by using a import sys; print(sys.path) and using the standalone player.

This info doesn't seem to be found anywhere in the API docs strangely.
