Effective immediately, MPEG-1 (H.261) and MPEG-2 (H.262) video implementations are permitted in Fedora.

Please note that while MPEG-2 is the video format for DVD-Video, support for encrypted DVD playback is not permitted in Fedora. See: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Forbidden_items#Encrypted_DVD_Playback

Support for MPEG Video formats later than MPEG-2 is not currently permitted in Fedora. This includes, most notably, H.263, H.264 (MPEG-4), and H.265 (HEVC).

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me, or reply on list.
