I don't think there is a better solution than mplayer for playing
videos. ;-)

Today we had our devel-meeting (I'll post some more information on
it in the next days). All of us would like to see mplayer integrated
in grml.

But we are not sure what would be the consequences if grml provides
mplayer (and w32codecs?). Is it not to be compliant to DSFG (Debian
Free Software Guidelines) so it can't be considered as a CDD (Custom
Debian Distribution) or are there any (other/more) legal issues we
should think of?
