debian-multimedia.org is not an official repository, and has packages  
that are not legal to use without a patent license (this is not only  
a problem in the US, but mostly).  Using all official Debian packages  
means that it meets the DFSG, which is a very good thing, IMHO.

Looking at things from a more basic level, you can come up with a  
more direct solution... It may sound small in theory, but it in  
practice, it can change entire economies.     - Amy Smith
