I don't agree with this nonsense at all:

The project is not really needed nowadays, except for one package: libdvdcss

There was MUCH more than libdvdcss in Medibuntu. What I want now is, where are alternative repositories for the following packages?

non-free-codecs

w64codecs [yeah, this one hurts specially!]


Look at some examples error messages I got now without that packages:

VLC does not support the audio or video format "undf". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

VLC does not support the audio or video format "IV41". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

mplayer, mencoder, libavutil-extra-51, and libavcodec-extra-53 are all available in the Ubuntu 13.10 repositories. –  Alistair Buxton Oct 23 '13 at 0:23
    
@AlistairBuxton But I am using 12.04 LTS and have no intention to upgrade to nothing else than 14.04 LTS –  Mephisto Oct 23 '13 at 0:28

They are available in the 12.04 repositories too. –  Alistair Buxton Oct 23 '13 at 0:31
    
@AlistairBuxton (you are right, +1, they are there). I'll still leave the question here, because of w32codecs and non-free-codecs –  Mephisto Oct 23 '13 at 0:36
    
I don't know anything about the other two, sorry. –  Alistair Buxton Oct 23 '13 at 0:41
