I don't use gnome. This is KDE.
I did not download any packages from anywhere.
In FF, I went to Add-Ons--->Plugins and selected "Always
Activate" for the OpenH264 plugin.
Okay. So you're skipping the step of installing the
packages from the fedora-cisco-openh264 repo. Doing that
prevents the need for firefox to attempt to download the
plugin (which it clearly doesn't or can't do).
It's not important enough to poke at this further, as it's
only a mild curiosity to know whether the OpenH264 plugin
provided by Cisco in the fedora-cisco-openh264 repo works
for general H.264 decoding (as I was told it should).
I'll leave it to the folks who provide that to test it and
see that it works as intended. At this point, I think the
lack of general H.264 playback is correctly documented on
the wiki page and the information I received to the contrary
It would seem the answer is to install the appropriate
ffmeg libs for the version of fedora one is running.
Indeed. The need for compat-ffmpeg28 on Fedora 28 should
hopefully be short-lived (but the effort from the packagers
at rpmfusion is much appreciated).
The trouble with being punctual is that nobody's there to appreciate
