for my part, I tried to do some job.
step 0, well, first of all, learn how to properly use GIT
but moreover, I tried to build a package out a recent SVN snapshot of
MPlayer using the most recent FFMpeg in Debian, using my debian/ . I
have reached a point where the code compiles but fails to link at the
end. ("been there, seen that" all this is a huge dejavu, already
happened before the freeze of Lenny)
as soon as I understand GIT well enough :-> I will upload this partial

yeay that is the way I am trying to have it working: no copy of ffmpeg
for this though there are some files in the source of ffmpeg that should
be shipped in some binary .debs (some of the -dev distributed from the
source FFMpeg , I mean): namely the following headers
and these two , maybe in /usr/share/ffmpeg
Reinhard, may you add those ?

mplayer may be removed from testing to ease transition; it will indeed
take some time before it will work

currently unstable is passing thru huge changes, the next freeze is
quite far away, so I vote for unstable

I just noted . Today I am quite busy, I will look into it tomorrow

so dont bother converting any
