Improving Debian's Multimedia Experience

why do 3rd party multimedia archives suck

Currently, many multimedia related packages are still unpackaged, or packaged but not in debian. Our users therefore have to choose from a number of 3rd party distributors or compile software from source which leads to a poor user experience.

This BoF discusses the needs, requirements and interest of 3rd-party archives that contain multimedia related packages. The goal is to identify the current biggest multimedia related problems in debian and tries to form suggestions on how to improve the situation.
