Yes, I suggested both of those project ideas and have only done a little bit of work on them (mostly Mp3 optimization).  Given your background I think you would be a strong candidate for either project (or possibly other optimization related tasks depending on your precise interests).  If you're interested in learning more about codecs, I suggest spending some time in our IRC channels, theres a few people who are quite knowledgeable about them (Buschel, amiconn, saratoga, mt, lear, preglow, linuxstb).   
You may also be interested in our codec benchmarks:

Anything that looks slow there is probably fair game for a GSOC proposal.
