These packages are now GPL and available from Arch, Debian main repo, *BSD 
ports, OpenSuSE, Slack, and more, so there may have been issues with 
non-relocatable non-PIC assembler code, patents now expired/lapsed/challenged, 
VideoLan or alternative commercial licensing, for example no commercial use 
Many codecs like these can be installed on Fedora, etc. from RPMfusion, 
UnitedRPMs, or other repos.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis			Calgary, Alberta, Canada
