Here is how I do exactly this, for lenny:

After running lh_config, I create a file called debian-multimedia.chroot
in config/chroot_sources, like this (in one line):

echo "deb http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ testing main" >

I also need the GPG keyring file for debian-multimedia.org. If the
debian-multimedia-keyring package is installed on the computer you build
your Debian Live image, you can
copy /usr/share/keyrings/debian-multimedia-keyring.gpg to

Now, you should be able to add debian-multimedia.org packages to your
Debian Live system.

Good luck!

There may be legal issues with the packages that you install from
debian-multimedia.org. You should probably not redistribute these
ready-built Debian Live images!
