Yes, I believe you are right there.  I suspect ffmpeg is the closest
"replacement" for mencoder, thought the feature set is different. :)

I've experienced both, movies playable with vlc and not mplayer, and
the other way around.  And vlc will use the w32codecs as well, so
there is not much difference there.

I agree, but understand and accept that the license issues need to be
checked before it is accepted into debian.
