Could you maybe move this to FFmpeg?
This looks like a compressed format, and compression is quite high (about 1:40), but the bitstream doesn't look too efficient (even gzip can compress it by 2 %).
One of those videos in decoded form (or at least something we already support) would also be quite useful...
