ubuntu-restricted-extras doesn't recommend gstreamer0.10-pitfdll

Bug #155770 reported by ubuntu_demon on 2007-10-22
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubuntu-restricted-extras (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

ubuntu-restricted-extras doesn't recommend gstreamer0.10-pitfdll
Maybe it should since https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats recommends gstreamer0.10-pitfdll for Dapper and Edgy.

From the pitfdll websites (http://ronald.bitfreak.net/pitfdll.php) :
Pitfdll is a GStreamer plugin that allows the use of binary files, such as Quicktime QTX or Directshow/DMO DLL files, for use as a playback codec in GStreamer-based media applications, such as Totem. With this plugin, people can playback proprietary file formats for which no free software implementation exists yet.
