Taviso/Tigger could you check up on the win32codecs issue? 

From bug #92229:

------- Additional Comment #1 From  Carsten Lohrke 2005-05-11 09:23 PDT [reply] -------   
Since it is related, I'd like to ask, if win32codecs is under control. I'm rather suspecious about its security status, since it includes quite a lot of libraries, a mix of realplayer 8 and 10 in the among them. And the mplayer.hq Changelog is everything else than detailed.

marking CANTFIX, as the coment says the ChangeLog is not helpful and the source 
is not available for these proprietary components. However, I'd be surprised if 
the codecs themselves were responsible for the security vulnerability.
