What the original author ignored to include was link to
http://brendaneich.com/2012/03/video-mobile-and-the-open-web/ which 
explains the position of MoFo. What he completely missed is bug 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=422540 around which we 
argued for years that MoFo should leave whole codecs business altogether 
and let platform systems (GStreamer, QuickTime, DirectShow) deal with it 
(as many WebKit-based browsers do now).

If he read the bug and understood what it means, he would know that it 
has absolutely nothing to do with inclusion of H.264 in the Fedora 
proper. My system is perfectly capable of viewing H.264 movies now.
