Bug#752656: iceweasel: Iceweasel 24.6.0 in stable has gstreamer support disabled even though gstreamer 0.10 is available in it

Package: iceweasel
Version: 24.6.0esr-1~deb7u1
Severity: normal

Iceweasel 24.6.0 has the --disable-gstreamer complie time option as listed in
about:buildconfig, which means youtube's HTML5 player doesn't work with H264
videos even if the about:config option media.gstreamer.enabled is set to true.
http://www.youtube.com/html5 reports no H.264 support, it worked before the
Iceweasel 24.5.0 update a month or so ago.

Iceweasel used the gstreamer 0.10 packages which are still available in stable,
I saw from some googling ( http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-
mozilla-maintainers/2014-May/015728.html ) that support was removed because
gstreamer 0.10 was no longer available in testing. Iceweasel 29 is now the
version in testing, with 24 only being in stable, so there's no reason for the
--disable-gstreamer flag anymore.
