I am finding problems getting some multimedia apps to work properly on wheezy.  Certain features of avidemux 2.5.6 crash. 2.6 barely works at all. Their custom install script uses sudo (which isn't enabled by default on Debian).  DVDStyler isn't even in the deb multimedia repos for wheezy but there are plenty of .debs available for 'buntu.   It seems that media devs are putting time into getting things going on 'buntu but leaving Debian behind. Hmmmm . . . I wonder why . . . I want to stick with Debian but may have to keep my media work indefinitely on squeeze if things don't straighten out on wheezy.  Or find a more media friendly distro. Right now I'm feeling frustrated on the way to po'd.  Thankfully, I did manage to get the driver for the old nvidia card installed with the sgfxi script but had to blacklist nouveau to get it to work.
