    While i am not against it the main problem remains. Most websites still use h264 instead of something open. Apple as it seems is one of the main reasons for it.

    h264 is actually open, but patent encumbered; something that matters in 4 or 5 countries.
    In any case, it is time for h265, vp9 and Daala.

    Which one of them is the US, where most computer tech is based and things like that matter.

    I was using the Gentoo ebuild, with the gstreamer USE flag set. maybe it was just enabling experimental code?

    AFAIK you had to built it with gstreamer support -as in your case- to get it to work. I don't think any distro was doing that.
