Bug#221806: ITP: mmsclient -- mms streaming media download utility

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : mmsclient
  Version         : 0.0.3
  Upstream Author : "Major MMS" (http://www.geocities.com/majormms/)
* URL             : http://www.geocities.com/majormms/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : mms streaming media download utility

mmsclient is a simple client to download streaming audio and/or video media
from the internet using the MMS protocol. Downloaded streams can then be
replayed offline at your leisure, using any compatible media player of your
choice (not included).


Most media streamed with MMS is in Microsoft media format, so some non-free
codecs or players may be required to actually play back some downloaded
streams. This package, however, just understands the MMS protocol and saves
streams for later use; it's not concerned with decoding the actually media.

The upstream author posted his work at the URL given above. However, he or she
does not give an e-mail address or name either on the web site or in the
downloaded package. The source is explicitly marked as being licensed under
the GPL, so I don't believe this is a problem.

I will attempt to track down more info about the upstream author, 
but if that is not possible, I will happily take over as the upstream
maintainer as well as doing the packaging. (The package works very well as is,
but is sorely in need of UI updates!)
