Hey there,

I've uploaded the latest upstream versions of vlc and mplayer to
karmic. Both packages have really a huge amount of bugs, where I think
that they have been fixed in the latest upstream version. The packages
have been backported for jaunty in the motumedia PPA.  Espc. mplayer has
been left outdated for several ubuntu releases.

Additional note for mplayer: the new mplayer package essentially
replaces the former package that was derived from the debian-multimedia
package with the new debian version of the package. They were so
different that it is quite possible that there are some regressions
