Hi,
I've updated my system today and saw that latest Firefox version has a new use flag disabled named -gstreamer-0%.
can someone please explain what it does and what's the difference between it and normal gstreamer use flag?

firefox[gstreamer] used to use gstreamer:0.10 until version 37. Version 38 switched to gstreamer:1.0. There have been problems, like a HUGE memory leak in any h264 HTML5 video with ffmpeg (fixed now). The useflag "gstreamer-0" is supposed to force the usage of the older gstreamer slot.

Maybe I did not have the versions right, but the change must have happended between firefox 31 and 38.

Oh, over 300 posts means guru, so :-)

I got the firefox/gstreamer info from the user or developer mailing list which I have subscribed and read irregularly.
