i'm rebuilding gstreamer (on-device) to build gstreamer with more codec support. first, you should make a build chroot .

  1. install speex-devel flac-devel libtheora-devel libvorbis-devel in your chroot
  2. install gstreamer-ffmpeg source package and it's requirements
  3. adjust the spec file to remove the patch and the %configure parameters
  4. adjust the spec file to add the following %configure parameters: --with-ffmpeg-extra-configure=--enable-ffplay --enable-ffmpeg --enable-encoder=flac --enable-hwaccels --enable-filters --enable-optimizations --enable-postproc --disable-gpl
  5. rpmbuild -bs SPEC/gstreamer-ffmpeg.spec
  6. rpmbuild --rebuild --target armv7hl-meego-linux gstreamer-ffmpeg.src.rpm

Can you use a similar process to enable replaygain? If I rebuilt gstreamer to include the plugin I wouldn't know how to make it active for all streams. Any thoughts/ideas?

This package adds support for lots of codecs. Have you tried it ? https://openrepos.net/content/xerxes2/ultimate-codec-support

(See comments on this page as to how to enable the correct repository)

i cannot trust external repositories, which is why i'd like to rather fix this in mer/nemo, or build it myself

I too am interested in Jolla Phone supporting standard codecs. As a true Linux it must somehow be possible to install all current gstreamer 1.7 codec packages, mustn't it? Does anyone have a tutorial for doing so? Many media lovers would certainly be happy about that.
