Let Firefox support h264 video in Fedora

H264 decoder is proprietary. Hence no default installation on fresh Fedora. We need to add rpmfusion repositories and other packages to support firefox streaming/playing h264 format.

First, install RPMFusion repo on Fedora 23:

dnf install http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-23.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-23.noarch.rpm

Now install the necessary h264 packages:

dnf install gstreamer1-libav gstreamer1-vaapi gstreamer1-plugins-{good,good-extras,ugly} -y

Restart your browser.
