[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, precompiled debs are available for x86, amd64 and ppc at http://www.debian-multimedia.org/

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

In September 2006, there was an [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).
