Thanks for the links.  Seemed to play out through libavcodec here, but 
I might have built it non-free-ly.

I'm a bit surprised that RMS speaks as if Sun have already released it 
all under the GPL, rather than merely saying that they will release 
most of it next year.  Why all the premature Sun-bathing?
