  1. HTML5 FTW! WebM FTW! Theora FTW! Vorbis FTW! ffmpeg FTW! GStreamer FTW! Flash WTF!😉

  2. Please file a bug in bugzilla.mozilla.org and we’ll see if we can fix the page.

    Perhaps Gnash identifies itself as Flash so sites still send Flash content.

  3. This is really fascinating. I had this kind of situation once when I was using Gnash and then this suddenly came up. Anyway, thanks a lot for posting!
