Re: Bug#157719: ITP: ffmpeg -- FFmpeg Streaming Multimedia System

Yep, it's the same with nvrec. But I discussed this with my mentor, and
we're still not clear on this: if a package needs linking with some
troublesome package, does this break the DFSG?

I guess it depends if you consider "the software" as "the source" or
"the binary".

depends, unless an xvid version is written, cf. previous point.

In practice, this would mean that _anything_ that uses a lame call is
not fitted for debian?

And yes, I am in trouble, most of the packages that ITP (mostly video
related) depend on lame.
