SoC Idea: Improve video support

I really want to participate in Google's Summer of Code, but I realize I don't 
have much time left to find a suitable project.  What I am thinking of is to 
improve Wine's capability of playing videos in games, first by fixing mciavi 
so it can play the Worms 2 intro films (bug 4256), and then hopefully 
progessing to fixing bugs in quartz/devenum, like crashes in Worms Armageddon 
or playback in WMP9.
Is this too ambitious considering that I don't really have much experience 
with C and Wine?  The 
closest I have gotten is some patches for Wine's WordPad implementation.
