How to Enable H264 on Fedora Linux 33 Chromium Browser


First, let us enable H264 support for Chromium browser. Install Chromium version from the official repositories:

$ rpm-ostree install chromium

Next, install all media codecs for the latest Chromium browser by installing the chromium-libs-media-freeworld package:

$ rpm-ostree install chromium-libs-media-freeworld

Similarly, to enable H264 support for Mozilla Firefox, the command would be:

$ rpm-ostree install mozilla-openh264

Now reboot your system to apply the changes.

$ systemctl reboot

Now verify if H.264 support is enabled by visiting the YouTube URL ->

This is how I added H.264 support for Chromium and Firefox browsers in Fedora Silverblue 33. After enabling H264, I could be able to play all type of media formats without any issues.
