Although, I "past performance is no indication of future expectations", I have
always used the Marillat repositories for all the Media stuff.
Recently they moved but the relevant sources.list entry is:
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ testing main
If you "apt-get update" after inserting this, then everything you may need for
any media format is available.
Someone please shout if there are any known problems with this.
