gnash has already been backported months ago:
gnash | 0.8.11~git20150419-1~bpo8+1 | jessie-backports | source
gnash | 0.8.11~git20150419-3 | testing | source
Changes from -1 to -3 are irrelevant: -2 disables gstreamer media
handler just because it does support gst0.10 only, which at this time
is in stable only IIRC, anyway ffmpeg one has always been better and
-3 fixes the alternatives system fix, ubuntu thing (LP: #1266088).
gnash (0.8.11~git20150419-3) unstable; urgency=medium
* Run dpkg-vendor at build time (Closes: #792464).
gnash (0.8.11~git20150419-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Remove gst0.10 build-deps, it doesn't support gst1.0. Build only
ffmpeg/libav media handler.
gnash (0.8.11~git20150419-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream snapshot.
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.6 (no changes).
* Fix alternative system on ubuntu (LP: #1266088).
Upstream is pretty dead, from time to time I upload snapshots. At the
moment, few changes since April to deserve an upload.
