Package: gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad
Version: 1.12.3-2
Followup-For: Bug #862024


Biggest culprit are the new opencv packages, there libopencv-contrib3.2
pulls libvtk (150MB) and other big packages, about 236MB in total.

Next in the list is libopencv-calib3d3.2, at 60MB,
libopencv-objdetect3.2 at 58MB, libopencv-imgcodecs3.2 at 57MB.

So, simply splitting /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-1.0/libgstopencv.so
out in another package will reduce the size of dependencies to the
previous level.

Hope it helps.
