It all depends on what framework you want to use your codec in. I
would suggest adding your codec in libav/ffmpeg. In that case adding
Matroska support is just adding the mapping of your codec ID/to your
codec code. That should be a single line addition.

If you want to use more features available for codecs, you may need
more than that.
