FWIW, this may be fixed, but Firefox v60 + OpenH264 is still broken.
- The about:plugins page never shows the plugin get a mime-type associated to it.
- Youtube HTML5 page says h.264 is NOT supported.
Installing compat-ffmpeg28 is still required as of Firefox 60.
You should only need ffmpeg-libs in Firefox 60, not
compat-ffmpeg28. The compat package was a temporary fix for
the lack of ffmpeg-4.0 support in Firefox < 60. (In
upstream Firefox it's < 61, but the Fedora firefox-60
packages include the (large) ffmpeg-4.0 patch.)
The Cisco OpenH264 packages definitely aren't sufficient for
general-purpose H.264 decoding. The wiki does say this, but
there is apparently some confusion about it still.
AFAIK, the wiki is correct. The Cisco OpenH264 packages
only provide WebRTC, which is great if you need it. But
it's not what most people want when they search for H264
If there is documentation stating that the Cisco OpenH264
packages provide general H264 decoding, it should be
corrected. (If someone with authority says it should work,
then there are bugs to be filed and fixed.)
