Videos not playing after update on fedora 29

more options

since the latest upgrade, firefox is not playing any video. I tried unchecking the 'use hardware when available' and tried checking the 'play drm content' but I am still getting the following message: Your browser does not currently recognise any of the formats available.

Youtube reports that firefox has no plugin for h.264 - see attached screenshot.

I am on fedora 29, is there a library that I need to install?

I enabled the rpmfusion repos and installed the ffmpeg library and restarted firefox and the videos started working fine. Thanks!

The not being able to handle say MSE & H.264 and H.264 on https://www.youtube.com/html5/ means you may not have packages like FFmpeg installed.
