Well I tried 
apt-cache search mplayer  Which showed
mga-vid-source - Kernel driver for the back-end scaler on Matrox cards

So I did 
apt-cache show mga-vid-source       ; and got

many Matrox cards. If you own a Matrox card, and use your Debian system
to watch movies with 'mplayer', which you'll find at
http://mplayerhq.hu ,
you definitely want this piece of software, as it is the best video
output driver available.
Does that help any?
