Ah, right. Stupid mistake with encoder, that explains a lot.


Saying that, none of the plugins under core are relevant to
vimeo. I need a h.264 decoder, which previously was provided
by ffmpeg. Rest of the bunch (theora, webm, ogg) are somehow
already handled by firefox 28 (playback works).

I've added mad to have a playback on bandcamp & soundcloud (works).
