Someone recently noted on a german mailinglist (don't remember which one)
that nowdays most of those codecs are implemented in ffmpeg which in turn
makes them avaible for all media player which use ffmpeg.

I guess that just the ffmpeg version in Debian lacks those features because
of patent issue. So it might make sense to try the corresponding packages
from debian-multimedia.org as proposed in another mail in this thread.
