The same argument could be used for autodownloader, if someone wants to play quake, I much rather have they use autodl to download a legal version then use some pirated full version.

I really must say I don't understand how people can have an issue with autodownloader and at the same time defend codina. To me that is nothing shirt of hypocritical.

Here's the bottom line:

Is $MEDIAPLAYER usable if the user decides they don't want to download any codecs with codeina? Yes, because we ship and support vorbis, theora, flac, wav, etc.

Is $GAME playable if the user decides they don't want to download the non-free items? If yes, I'm totally fine with the game using autodownloader. If no, I have a major problem with the game being in Fedora. In neither case do I have a problem with autodownloader existing.
