The H.264 codec will become unavailable in Firefox once FFmpeg 4.0 is pushed into Extra repo. I'm using FFmpeg from AUR so it's already broken for me.
Needs patch: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/autoland/rev/573a198b7fdf. I've manually tested it.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 60.0b14-1
* Related ticket in Mozilla's bug tracker: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1435212.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  This is resolved/added upstream in 61 so the patch isn't necessary to add anymore.

ffmpeg 4.0 is in staging for rebuilds, so this is actually valid. If it was just AUR, it wouldn't be.
