MPGV support?

We have few old streaming services which use MPEG-1/2 (mpgv) video codec. Here's a screenshot from VLC which shows the codec details for video and audio:

These videos don't work in Windows Phone or Windows 8, but Windows 8 Pro Pack adds the missing pieces, allowing WinRT apps to play the videos.

What I wonder is that would it be a huge effort to make this project work with the mpgv codec? Is it like "all the parsing has to be written from the scratch, it takes months" or more like "the codecs are close, with little work it should work"?

This already works in the Win8.1 variant. Seek still doesn't work, but I have tested MPEG-2 video.

You do need Win 8.1 RTM and VS2013 RC.
