A geeky newbie geek is looking for developers wanting to reinvent wheels to plan and then develop a permissive audio/video codec library, similar to ffmpeg's libavcodec, but with a permissive license which allows static linking for other than (L)GPL software.

The core of the library should probably have an extremely permissive license, like zlib, wtfpl, CC0 or public domain. Then nobody won't ever need to reinvent the wheel again. But individual codecs could have also the more restrictive permissive licenses, like BSD or MIT. But not GPL or LGPL. There are already many single permissive codec implenentations, like the Xiph.org codecs which are BSD.

This is the project page: https://sourceforge.net/projects/permavcodec/.
