installing codecs in Speeze alpha

I'm installing Squeeze Alpha... what repos do I need added to install libdvdcss and w64codecs or whatever codecs that are needed to run music and DVDs?

Forget about w64codecs--even w32codecs for 32 bit. Use a fresh build of mplayer and/or mplayer-mt from Debian-multimedia and it should play almost anything you come across. The w64codecs only contain a few Real codecs that are duplicated in mplayer and mplayer-mt anyway, and just about everything in w32codecs is also now supported natively. I don't use them and don't miss them at all. You do need libdvdcss2 for DVD decryption.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Kodi 18.6, Blender 2.8.2, 5.5 kernels, Chromium with va-api, Telegram-desktop 1.9.21, Foliate 2.0.0

Thank you.... I'll wait until Squeeze final comes out, then I'll start again.
