So yeah, the question is clear.
How do I force Firefox to play webm videos using gecko-mediaplayer?
Compile firefox without webm support?
Or there's some other way around?
You misunderstand the job GM is doing. It's a video player for
embedded video objects and its plugin registers itself as such. If
the embedded video is WebM, GM will play it. If it's HTML5 video
(both WebH and H.264), then it will not, and Firefox will play it
So your question should rather be: How do I force Firefox to play
HTML5 videos using gecko-mediaplayer? :-) (I don't know the answer.
I suspect it is not possible, since the whole point of HTML5 video is
to have the browser play the video.)
Anyway, I got the answer
Probably compiling firefox without webm support would get me my way.
