There is a link to a deb package for the N770 somewhere in the thread
about gstreamer-ogg-vorbis on internettablettalk.com.
I have tested this plugin and it actually works with audio player,
Canola, and Media Streamer.
The only drawback is that it doesn't support Ogg Vorbis tags and
doesn't report the track length to the player. Oh, and you have to
reboot your device after installing the plugin.
