Thank you for your answer.

"" Cube license
 Cube is freeware, you may use Cube for any purpose as long as you don't
 blame me for any damages incurred, and you may freely distribute the cube
 archive unmodified on any media. If you wish to use the cube source code
 in any way (available from where you got this), even just a mere build,
 read the readme.txt file carefully (ZLIB license).

What i was going to do is to package the medias inside a sigle Debian package. 
I don't split them, so where is the problem?

The media package can't be integrated in Debian main distribution because its 
non free contant, but i think that it can still can enter Debian non-free
