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.
