We're looking at some options to integrate new codecs. One of the issues I can already see is that some of them are licensed (e.g. the mpeg4 "discussion" that is currently ongoing).

If nobody else has already done it, I'm happy to do that. I've already done some of it for other work, so it's just a case of tidying it up. I also started doing one for audio, but that's a lot messier (lot more choices, lot more variants, ...)
