PantsOn had a MPEG module (mpeg 1 and 2) but he mentions issues with the license, as far as I can see the problem with Libmpeg2 is it's GPL this is copyleft and in a nutshell forces you to open source your code, yes it's really that restrictive. Also it needs to be converted to 64-bit Bmx.

So I recommend either Brucey's bah.avbin for AVI (LGPL3) or bah.theoraplayer for Theora (BSD) a lossy compression format, the module also imports bah.oggvorbis which is for OGG audio (also BSD).
