    fedora 28 and firefox video(h264, youtube, gstreamer1)

    Things have changed a bit lately with firefox, gstreamer1.14, ffmpeg, rpmfusion....
    To get all firefox quantum video to run under fedora 28 you can't just add ffmpeg-libs - You also have to add compat-ffmpeg28 from rpmfusion....
    Code:
    dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/{free/fedora/rpmfusion-free,nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree}-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
    dnf install ffmpeg-libs compat-ffmpeg28
    to check if everything(including h264) will work now in youtube: https://www.youtube.com/html5
    note: I am not sure you even need ffmpeg-libs anymore?

    why you are here in rpmfusion - don't forget to add your gstreamer1 video plugins for your fedora programs....
    Code:
    dnf install gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-plugins-ugly
    or you could just do everything at once listed above(need unrar?)....
    Code:
    dnf install https://download1.rpmfusion.org/{free/fedora/rpmfusion-free,nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree}-release-$(rpm -E %fedora).noarch.rpm
    dnf install gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-plugins-ugly unrar compat-ffmpeg28 ffmpeg-libs

    Thanks pal, thank you very much.
    I installed the codecs running
    Code:
    sudo dnf groupupdate multimedia
    but some codecs were still missing, because twitter video and spotify-web problems. All fixed after run
    Code:
    sudo dnf install compat-ffmpeg28
