  This package is in the "debian-multimedia" repositories -- a bit
of googling should find you a nearby mirror, which you can add to 
your sources.list.

  It's been a while since I was current on this, but I believe 
they're excluded from the main repos due to patent and/or license
encumbrances.  If you care about such things, you might wish to 
encode to a more open format, like ogg.
