This may have been mentioned elsewhere in this thread, but a wiki page
under wiki.debian.org instructs users to use d-m.o as a repository to
get various codecs.


Obviously wikis need to be taken with a grain of salt, but anything
(including wiki.d.o) under the debian.org domain feels somewhat
official and can lead users without the requisite knowledge to heed
said advice. If there are users out there who can distill their
knowledge regarding codecs and improve the wiki page, then that would
be much appreciated.
