[theora] Encoding raw to Theora

We tentatively chose the most restrictive license since we need to closely
monitor how the video is released when it is released. After that crucial
period of the launch we may chose a less restrictive licence.

For now the NC-ND Creative Commons license means people must ask before
doing something more than just redistributing the original video, not that
we absolutely forbid any kind of commercial use or alteration. Codec
development at large is perfectly fine, we're not clutching our sources,
simply planning the upcoming release.
We had thought that it would be interesting if people could add their own
score to the video and vote for the best one, but we have no time to do so
for we won't hold back the release once editing hits the final stage. We
submitted the idea to Mozilla though, so it's kind of up to them to open the
door for a less restrictive use of the video.
