I have Aurora Firefox build installed alongside Pale Moon and noticed that Aurora plays Html5 videos perfectly via gstreamer (in buildconfig there is --enable-gstreamer=1.0 ). I don't have flash installed in Aurora at all for some time and can survive just on html5.
Will it be enabled in Pale Moon in near future?

You can set media.gstreamer.enabled to true from about:config for this purpose.

Thank you, that did the trick, Is there a reason why this isn't enabled by default?

Edit. It doesn't seem to be working right, playing same video on Vimeo (http://vimeo.com/96559833) ,Pale Moon 90~% cpu, Aurora 20~%.

Edit. 2 T'was just a system hiccup, cpu usage is comparable, although still higher in Pale Moon, by ~10-15%

Seems to be this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=884651

I'll look into this.
