Default >=www-client/chromium-6.0.472.33 and h264

I've noticed that ebuilds of chromium at and
later than 6.0.472.33 no longer use the system-provided ffmpeg,
and seem to lose support for h264 videos (test any non-webm, html5
video at youtube; it will never load).



I've tried doctoring the ebuild to use the system-provided ffmpeg,
which does not fix h264 video and causes crashes on webm videos:
probably why we went back to the bundled ffmpeg.



Has anyone else noticed this?* Is there a straightforward
work-around beyond going back to 6.0.472.14ish?



Thanks,



-Andy

Using system-ffmpeg is commented as TODO in the ebuild refering to [1].�There is also bug report[2] related to this. Seems like it maybe fixed in a never branch than 472.

Thanks for the info.* That doesn't entirely answer my question,
though... shouldn't chromium's bundled ffmpeg have h264 support?*
Google's youtube.com/html5 page suggests that Chrome (and thus
chromium?) supports h264.* Is this a licensing issue going to the
open source build that I've not heard of yet?



Thanks again,



-Andy

Yes bundled ffmpeg should have h264 support but I think it as broken with*a patch for ubuntu.*
Did you read the bug report on crbug? It is reported for 479 and marked*

as *fixed* in the trunk as of Aug 9th. *I didnt read the release note of it but*490 was released on 13th and is in portage since then.*So..you can*either unmask it and give it a try or wait for the next release and keep an*

eye on the release notes.

I have tried 490, and it has the same problem: html5test.com reports
no h264 support, and non-webm, html5 youtube videos don't work.



I'll continue trying successive builds as they're posted... maybe
490 doesn't have that commit yet?

Maybe not. I suggest poke around crbug.com and also keep an eye on the release blog.*http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/
