You're right, it's available on powerpc (I've updated that on Git),
but I don't see it being available on arm.

I've tested it builds, but not that it works. I think upstream might
have tested that LiVES (upstream not the Debian package) works without
frei0r-plugins as long as it's not built with frei0r-plugins-dev
though. I'll ask.

Yeah. I've updated that in git as well.

You're right, it shouldn't do. I've updated that in git.

I'll fix the typos now, and the content later today. Was it just the
misspelling of originally you found?

Fixed in git.

AFAIK they just allow for extra encoding options, but I'll verify that
with upstream. Once verified I'll add a README.Debian.

Thanks for your help!
