Default codecs/codecs64 - what's the scoop? Why the massive difference.


I'm trying to figure out why the i686 codecs package (rm from extra now in
aur) is so massively different from the x86_64 codecs64 package in aur. The i686
package seems fine, but the x86_64 package seems to be nothing but a shadow of a

183164 Nov 10 00:08 codecs64-20071007-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz


The codecs i686 package is:

18465084 Nov 9 17:51 codecs-20110131-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz

18.4M ?

I read the aur notes about the i686 and x86_64 bit versions use different
upstream releases and contain completely different codecs, but I don't
understand why or how this can possibly work. I have also read
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Codecs which seems a bit 'tounge-in-cheek',
but provides no additional information. Anybody know more? Does the x86_64
package even work? If you use these, please let me know. Thanks.
