now that Stretch has frozen, some of the packages in this repo will still update to newer versions than Stretch has available, and may interfere with an in-place upgrade from Jessie to Stretch. The workaround is to remove the offending package (such as my mpv which is newer than Stretch's 0.23) and then reinstall the Stretch version after the upgrade. I also plan to add Stretch builds to the repository as soon as the OBS makes it available to users.
Edited to reflect current situation: I've added packages to this Jessie-backports-multimedia project that are related to multimedia in some way, or require the newer ffmpeg, such as the development GIMP. Many of the packages are not available in Debian at all, such as DVD Styler or ClipGrab.
Instructions for adding the repository:https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... ackage=mpv
You can view the project here, and see what programs are in it currently: https://build.opensuse.org/project/show ... evepassert
Edit: Note that the commands to get and add the repository key must also be run with root privileges, not sudo, and watch the name of the keyfile that is downloaded--substitute that name in the add-key command if it differs, which you'll get if adding multiple OBS repositories.
I don't know if anyone else wants information on how to use the OBS--it's free and rather easy to set up and use in a web interface, and you can get as many free repositories as you wish.
