Description Arun Raghavan 2013-09-23 05:51:08 EDT
Firefox has had a GStreamer backend for decoding audio for a while now. This is quite handy since it enables supports for restricted codecs such as h.264, aac and mp3 which users otherwise need Adobe Flash for. Upstream is going this route already (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=794282).
Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2013-10-11 15:39:45 EDT
Unfortunately the gstreamer support is not ready yet. Jan is tracking it.
Comment 2 Mikko Tiihonen 2013-12-16 04:02:59 EST
The tracked bug is now fixed in Firefox 26, which is available in all Fedora releases.
Comment 3 Arun Raghavan 2013-12-17 22:12:54 EST
I see '--disable-gstreamer' in about:buildconfig with 26.0 (3.fc20), no h.264 support in http://html5test.com/
