Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

[solved] HTML5 Youtube with no video on Firefox/Iceweasel, in Debian testing/Stretch

Googling a little bit about, some solutions to the same symptoms pointed to needing to install something like gstreamer-ffmpeg. But not only that's unavailable in the latest Debian testing (Stretch), but it seems it's the other way around: for me it started to work again when I deactivated something related to gstreamer on about:config.

Doing so doesn't seem to have affected anything else (namely flash videos). But I feel that now HTML5 on youtube is somewhat heavier, buy maybe it was just xapi-apt-update-whatever running at the same time.

    It's still possible to activate the gstreamer-related thing on firefox and have HTML5 video working on youtube. But you got to uninstall some gstreamer-related packages. I don't remember which ones I've uninstalled, but my list of installed gstreamer-related things is:

    gstreamer-codec-install
    gstreamer-tools
    gstreamer0.10-alsa:amd64
    gstreamer0.10-audiosink
    gstreamer0.10-audiosource
    gstreamer0.10-gconf:amd64
    gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs:amd64
    gstreamer0.10-hplugins
    gstreamer0.10-lame
    gstreamer0.10-nice:amd64
    gstreamer0.10-packagekit
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad:amd64
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-base:amd64
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-farsight
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-good:amd64
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-good-doc
    gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad

    (dpkg-query -f '${binary:Package}\n' -W '*gstreamer*' -- to search installed packages on a debian system, su/sudo isn't required, or wasn't, to me)
