    Well yes there is a reason for Medibuntu, and with that reason in danger there needs to be either A: something to fill in the gap
    or B: it having a developer or C: Forcing everyone to compile.
    I say C is worst case scenario, ubuntu has made great strides and it will be a shame to see those codecs go, as it would make ubuntu useless for multimedia

    Now if videolan has packages then fine we can be cool and not compile.
    We just need to help new users figure it out.
    And I always think of new users

    Though it seems the most recent versions for libdvdcss are from way back.
    We definitely need a more recent version, one that not everyone will have to compile.

    Re: Medibuntu abandoned

    So... Of the 3 remaining things, one (/usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh) was fixed AFTER Medibuntu was taken down. What about the other two? Is anyone going to host the w32codecs/w64codecs and libavcodecs-extra? It is not like they change often...

    Also, note that the mirrors are still up...

    Mirror 1:

    deb http://mirrors.ucr.ac.cr/medibuntu/ precise free non-free
    deb-src http://mirrors.ucr.ac.cr/medibuntu/ precise free non-free



    Mirror 2:

    deb http://mirror.oscc.org.my/medibuntu/ precise free non-free
    deb-src http://mirror.oscc.org.my/medibuntu/ precise free non-free



    Mirror 3:

    deb ftp://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/medibuntu/ precise free non-free
    deb-src ftp://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/linux/medibuntu/ precise free non-free

    The libavcodec-extra package can be had, by adding the ffmpeg ppa found here:
    https://launchpad.net/~jon-severinsson/+archive/ffmpeg
    It must pull it in as a dependency.

    Use the debian-multimedia repo...that's what I use and haven't had problems.

    I use the "sid" repo so that if there's any new version for either libdvdcss2 or W64 codecs it will get pushed there.

    Mind you the MPlayer assembled codec pack for 64bit systems is not very useful and it is doubtful that it will ever be extended.....

    You are quite right...

    I should also point out that if you don't know what you are doing, a "noob" so to speak, it is asking for a borked system to mix ubuntu and debian sid repos/packages.

    If you really want libdvdcss2 and W32/64 codecs, enable the deb-multimedia repo, install said packages and then disable the deb-multimedia repo.
    You'll have the packages you need and won't cause havoc with your system.
