Note to Patrick O'Callaghan and all



It seems I can't receive mail for now, will probably be back tomorrow.

To Patrick O'Callaghan:

Maybe this will make more sense if I add a little word I forgot:

In other words, if the win32 codecs are not in "essentials" and kept
separated, wouldn't it be OK?

Real player codecs also seem to be kept separated, e.g.:

rp9codecs-20050115.tar.bz2

OTOH... Marco seems right about FFMPEG:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ffmpeg#Legal_status_of_codecs

It just seems surprising to me that mplayer can't play anything that is
non-proprietary while Totem can.

Now, I'm really going to bed :)
