Package: libmms0
Version: 0.4-2
Severity: wishlist

An ASF stream can contain several versions of the content encoded in
different bitrates as substreams. The mms software is supposed to
select an appropriate substream when it begins to download the stream.
The bitrates of the streams are described either in basic stream
properties ASF header or in extended stream properties header.

libmms release 0.4 supports only the basic stream properties header,
and ignores the substreams in extended stream properties. Sometimes (I
don't know if this is generally true) the basic header only describes
the low quality substream, and all higher quality substreams are
described in extended headers (maybe an ASF stream can contain only
one basic stream properties header?).

There is a bzr branch with the support for extended properties header
Please, include this feature in the Debian package.

A test case for the feature is
libmms 0.4-2 (using mimms 3.2.1-1 as a frontend) retrieves a very low
quality substream (9 kb/s audio, 37 kb/s video). With the extended
properties support included, libmms downloads the substream with
highest quality available (67 kb/s audio, 739 kb/s video). You can see
the bitrates when libmms's debug output is activated.

 libmms (0.6-1) unstable; urgency=low
   * Imported Upstream version 0.6
     + Includes support for extended stream properties (Closes: #498174).
     + Includes many bug fixes (Closes: #517105, #552127, #448559, #470806,
       #501068). All tried to reproduce by upstream with Fedora-13 x86_64 (so a
       pretty brand spanking new gstreamer stack) with libmms-0.6 installed.
   * Add myself to Uploaders.
   * Update Arthur's e-mail address.
   * Wrap lines in debian/control.
   * Bump Standards-Version to 3.8.4.
   * Fix binary-control-field-duplicates-source.
   * Add Homepage field to debian/control.
   * Add Vcs-* fields to debian/control.
   * Remove 11_nested_comments.diff, applied upstream.
   * Add patch from upstream GIT to remove unneeded bswap.h from public
     headers and avoid needless dependency on glib.h, remove
     Depends: libglib2.0-dev from libmms-dev. (Closes: #362657).
   * Add patch from upstream GIT to not incorrectly use the reserved
     keyword "this" as a variable name (Closes: #493735).
   * Add Depends: ${misc:Depends} to libmms-dev.
   * Convert Debian packaging to dh 7, use dh_quilt*
     and remove unnecessary chrpath usage.
   * Add debian/source/format, keep at "1.0" for now.
   * Add debian/README.source.
   * Add debian/gbp.conf.
   * Add .gitignore.
   * Add debian/libmms0.symbols.
   * Drop the replacement of config.{sub,guess} altogether, the ones
     upstream provides are newer than those in current Debian stable.
   * Improve debian/copyright.
