Now on Youtube on Firefox 26 you can play h.264 HTML5 videos using a gstreamer plugin. Apparently I have every gstreamer plugins installed (0.10 and 1, good bad and ugly), but Firefox doesn't recognize it, and there's no media.gstreamer.enabled on about:config. How do I get it working?

Firefox in Fedora is built without gstreamer support, they're waiting for proper gstreamer1.0 support in Firefox upstream

EDIT: has now been resolved and the latest firefox package - firefox-26.0-6.fc20 - is now built with gstreamer 0.10 support (see the bug report for more details).

14th June 2014 - Edit:

Starting with version 30.0, Firefox is built with gstreamer1.0 support instead of the gstreamer0.10.

FYI it turned out h.264 is in gstreamer1-libav package

On Firefox 26 in Fedora 20 is not now activated media.gstreamer by default, previously you had to set media.gstreamer.enabled to true in about:config
