You are right. It is not. Nor are the w32codecs you need to watch video.
Nor are they included in any distro I know of due to legal reasons, by

The w32codecs package isn't really needed for most video formats. The
only mainstream ones I can think of is the newest Real Video ones.
What you need are players with a recent ffmpeg version. ffmpeg supports
most formats, for example WMV9.
This is news to me, and good news at that! Thanks!
