Package: libavformat57
Version: 7:3.2.2-1
Severity: wishlist


I think that libopenmpt should be enabled in the Debian ffmpeg package.
libopenmpt-dev is in the archive right now.

libopenmpt is designed to be a replacement for libmodplug as it handles
the same types of files. There is an FAQ documenting the differences
here: https://lib.openmpt.org/libopenmpt/#sec_faq. The major advantage
is that it has a fairly active upstream compared to libmodplug and
certain modules play better with it.

I don't know if libmodplug has to be disabled, but presumably ffmpeg
will choose one over the other for the vast majority of cases so I'm not
sure it's worth it having both enabled.
