At the moment, this plugin depends also on other non-free packages, like
mjpegtools. Besides this, vdr-burn is 0.1.0~pre21 for nearly 2 years
now. It seems upstream development has stopped. So at the moment, this
is a no-go and I even wouldn't consider uploading it to non-free.

BTW: Someone asked me recently, if there is a Ubuntu repository
available, that has all the packages I provide on e-tobi.net. Do you
know of such a repository? If not, it might be a good idea, to provide
one. At the moment I don't have the resources for building another set
of packages (it already takes more than half a day to compile
everything), otherwise I would do it myself.
