for decoding, have a look at modules/pdp_qt.c in the tarball 
(http://zwizwa.fartit.com/pd/pdp/) the encoder object is in yves' pidip lib 
(http://ydegoyon.free.fr/) in modules/pdp_rec.c

since it just decodes the video (and audio) for a specific frame, and 
converts to the internal format, a native object is probably easier 
indeed. conversion are in the pdp framework (system/pdp_llconv.c ; not 
entirely mmx free yet..)
