RC1's IceWeasel fails HTML5 audio tests (MP3 and M4A)

Reference test sites:

You can also see a "real world" streaming MP3 failure on one of my (radio jukebox) web sites:

http://www.gooplusplus.com/jukebox

Most radio streams from stations A1-Y7 are in MP3 format while stations Z2-ZY are in OGG format. In Bunsen Labs RC1 and many other Linux distros running Firefox-compatible browsers, all OGG stations work while all MP3 stations fail.

The MP3 radio streams work in most major Windows browsers except Opera. The MP3 streams work in all Linux versions of Chrome and Chromium. The MP3 streams work in Firefox in Xubuntu and other distros but fail with Firefox in other distros.

In Linux Firefox (and compatible browsers), the failure seems to be related to Gstreamer. Ubuntu Mate was fixed by simply adding gstreamer1.0-libav but this did not always work with other distros. Other distros could be fixed by adding gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly or gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly. I tried both fixes using BL RC1 USB "live session" Synaptic but neither worked.

Re: RC1's IceWeasel fails HTML5 audio tests (MP3 and M4A)

The fix appears to be to install two packages:

gstreamer1.0-libav
gstreamer1.0-plugins-good
