I've skimmed a bit over upstream source, and it seems that not only
avcodec, but also parts of liba52 and faad are included. On the first
sight, all of these copy look rather ancient to me, but I may be wrong.

in any case, I don't think the approach pymedia has taken is a good
candidate for debian. While the project itself seems interesting, I'd
strongly recommend a serious reengineering that includes using system
libraries before working any further on packaging.

I didn't even look at your packaging, because you have decided to only
commit the debian/ directory in you svn without the upstream
source. Therefore, I went to the upstream webpage and downloaded the
source tarball.
