There is some recent (as of September 2006) [http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2006/09/msg00915.html update and summary on the case] on {{{debian-devel}}}.

The package landed in Debian Sid on October 26th 2006, this was [http://bugs.debian.org/113238 one of the longest ITP] (a little more than five years).

[http://mplayerhq.hu MPlayer] is a powerful Multimedia player and more. - It plays almost anything from RealPlayer to avi, but has licensing problems which makes it currently unsuited for going into Debian/main.

Also it has an Encoder shipped with it ["MEncoder"], which is very powerful.

Building your own package by yourself for Debian is easy, though, and if you're really lazy precompiled debs are available for x86, amd64 and ppc at [http://www.debian-multimedia.org/ http://www.debian-multimedia.org/]

There is a ["MPlayer"] plug-in for ["Mozilla"].
