Bug#847417: depends on gstreamer-plugins-bad, which is an ongoing source of security holes

Package: gnome-video-effects
Version: 0.4.1-3
Severity: normal

gstreamer-plugins-bad has been in the news at least twice recently for
security holes. 


It seems likely that it will continue to be a source of such security

I wanted to remove gstreamer-plugins-bad from my system, but this would
remove gnome-video-effects, which would remove cheese. I don't know why
cheese needs a ton of insecurely implemented codecs for playing Nintendo
games etc in order to take snapshots and record videos. Probably it doesn't?
