I'm interrested in sponsoring this package (ie. for owncloud), so here we go 
for some comments :

- You use tarball-in-tarball approch with a jQuery.jPlayer.2.1.0.source.zip 
into your jquery-jplayer_2.1.0.orig.tar.gz. I'm not sure this is useful for 
this simple package : you should just repack upstream to an orig.tar.{gz,bz2}. 
This is easier for code review and for applying patches.

- Jplayer.fla file seems to be useless (according to upstream [1] and to your 
debian/rules). Since this file seems to be a binary proprietary blob (and I 
don't know any tool in Debian that can edit this file) I think you should strip 
it from upstream tarball during repack.

- (optional) Maybe you should try Debian source package formats "3.0 (quilt)" 
[2] ?

- (optional) There is also improvement for debhelper handling. I think that 
you can simplify your debian/rules file [3]

That's all :)
