FEDORA --
It's now easier having basic H.264 support on Fedora Linux with there now being an official way thanks to cooperation with Cisco.

can now enable the fedora-cisco-openh264 repository and then simply install the mozilla-openh264 and gstreamr1-plugin-openh264 packages for having OpenH264 easily installed on the system.

While OpenH264 is then installed, currently this Cisco open-source project only supports H.264's Baseline profile and not any other profiles, but that will hopefully be changing soon with more development cooperation.

More details on this H.264 milestone for Fedora Linux can be found via this blog post by Red Hat's Christian Schaller.
