   The MPlayer tree contains an almost verbatim copy of libdvdcss
("statically linked for performance reasons", rotfl) and a copy of
ffmpeg's libavcodec library (you may want to have a look at the ffmpeg
ITP to see issues raised by libavcodec). What amount of these libraries
is still in your pristine sources? What amount is compiled? If you get
legal advice about the packaging of these libraries, please tell me, as
I would be very pleased to have them in Debian.
