okay, thanks a lot for the update - I was not aware that the position wrt such
codecs changed so drastically, but I am glad to hear it.
And I agree that handbrake would be a great addition, I use it whenever
possible to do recode my videos. The package from the original author,
designed for Ubuntu, works fine with Debian testing.

That might explain why the executable is 16MiB in size... ;-) (it does not
ship any .so files though)
