Does Shumway rely only on built-in video support or it can leverage Gstreamer for example? The later should support FLV container.

We use different media backends depending on the platform. On Linux, gstreamer is one option, IIRC. In any case, it's not just the container, it's also, and more importantly, the codec the contained stream uses. We're looking into supporting vp6, the older video codec that was in popular use in Flash a few years back.

With current version of Shumway (0.11.617) in Firefox 42, the sample referenced in the bug ( http://uppod.ru/samples/js/test.html ) doesn't even load the initial UI of the player when Flash is disabled and Shumway is enabled. It's worse than before when the UI was coming up, but video didn't work.

What does it mean "incomplete" in this case?
