It might be safe to use for some packages that aren't in Debian, such as Avidemux. But you have to be quite careful that anything you install from there does not want to upgrade other libraries that are in Debian--there be dragons there. That's where the cautious will do simulated installs first, and look at what will happen closely.

Hi,
First comment, i.e., place a hashtag # in front of the third-party multimedia repository in /etc/apt/sources.list so that it looks similar to this:
Code: Select all
# deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org buster main non-free

Then run:
Code: Select all
# apt update && apt install apt-show-versions

followed by
Code: Select all
# apt-show-versions|egrep "unknown|""No available"""

& post the output here.
You might also like to peruse the classic man page: apt-show-versions

Thanks.

Check with apt policy origin of these files....

handbrake handbrake-gtk libaribb25-0 libcdio19 libdav1d3 libdsm3 libdvdcss2 libfdk-aac2 libilbc2
libkvazaar4 liblivemedia68 libmfx1 libmng2 libopenh264-5 libplacebo2 libx264-158 libzimg2

or try this
Code: Select all
apt list --installed | grep 'dmo'

From the output given the following packages (including the keyring and those ending in dmo) are installed from that repository:
Code: Select all
deb-multimedia-keyring handbrake handbrake-gtk libaribb25-0 libcdio19 libdav1d3 libdsm3 libdvdcss2 libfdk-aac2 libilbc2 libkvazaar4 liblivemedia68 libmfx1 libmng2 libopenh264-5 libplacebo2 libprojectm2v5 libx264-158 libzimg2

Which answers your question.
Removing them might be problematic or even quite difficult but, should you wish to remove them as advised, you can always simulate their removal first as normal user with commands like:
Code: Select all
$ apt remove --purge -s handbrake handbrake-gtk

I see you also have virtualbox-6.0:amd64 6.0.12-133076~Ubuntu~bionic
Do you have any other third-party repositories?
Please post output of:
Code: Select all
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
Thanks.

It's testing mixed with the debian multimedia.org repository.
Good luck with that. :wink:

Virtualbox 6.0.14 is a pretty easy backport from upstream Debian to Buster, assuming you have fairly modern hardware. I didn't like its glaring white interface that would get white-on-white text if I used my preferred darker XFCE themes, but installing qt-style-plugins and then starting it with "VirtualBox -style fusion" makes the text black.

Even better, today I found that you can install qt5-style-kvantum and then use Kvantum manager to set Kvantum to one of its many themes from the qt5-style-kvantum-themes package, and then having VBox use the kvantum style instead of fusion gives you a whole range of colors:

This is a screenshot of VBox 6.0.14 with the Kvantum theme--kvantum manager using KvDarkRed modified by me.

if you then change the theme in Kvantum Manager, Vbox follows it after a restart: KvBlender:

KvYaru:

KvCyan:

The light themes still seem to result in glaring white, but at least you can read the text, and some of the other colored themes are quite nice, IMO.
