Yes, we support Gstreamer 0.10, ffmpeg or libmad directly. I haven't
had a chance to figure out why, but for whatever reason, the build of
Gnash for the XO, which uses gstreamer, don't seem to work with the
ffmpeg-gst plugin from Livna's Fedora repository.

On the XO, using ffmpeg directly has much better performance that
Gstreamer. Our ffmpeg support dates from when Gstreamer 0.8 was out,
which was insufficient for Gnash. 0.10 works, but it's far from optimal
