Talking with some folks in #fedora-devel, despite that
description it should provide more general support. I've
never used it before as I have ffmpeg-libs from rpmfusion
installed which provides good h.264 support.
If someone wants to test it with a current release, it
should be simple to do though.
Well, enabling the plugin on a F28 system results in a message saying the plugin will
be downloaded soon.....but it never does. At least not after 2hrs of waiting.
I just now upgraded an F27 laptop to F28. Previously the FF in F27 showed H.264
support available when checking www.youtube.com/html5
and the plugin disabled.
After the upgrade everything still works just fine and I see compat-ffmpeg28 has been
installed from rpmfusion.
I then installed compat-ffmpeg28 on an F28 install which I had done in a VM a while
back and had no H.264 support. After the install, it too had support added.
Conjecture is just a conclusion based on incomplete information. It isn't a fact.
