No I don't have much interest in either of those at this time.
They are popular for entertainment purposes but I find it hard to consider
them essential.

Well I am not likely to want any video or audio (even in open codecs) enabled
by default. It's just too annoying as commonly used. If I am specifically
interested in audio or video, I normally prefer to download it and play it back
with something other than firefox.
