yes, we have support for encrypted wmv so there should be no problem.

try to reuse the crypt code from ffmpeg/libavutil/* where possible. or
consider adding whatever en/decrypt code you need, as we do not like to
use too many external libs.

the more communication you have with ffmpeg developers or the mailing
list, the less problems you will have when merging time happens.

you may also want to post any work in progress patches or do request
for comments on any ideas, so developers do not object about strange
api additions to the code.

feel free to ask any questions.
