Hello, I'm packaging a video converter for portable media players named
iriverter. The REVU page is here: (btw, if any MOTU wants to
review it feel free :).

My question is, this package, which is GPL'ed, depends on mplayer and
mencoder which are in multiverse, so I was informed that it would have to go
into multiverse, but it would need w32codecs to work since it's converting
video. Can a package like this make it into ubuntu at all? Even multiverse?
Or should I submit it to Seveas for his repositories or the PLF?

- Regards,
Richard Bailey
