Subject: [gentoo-user] >=www-client/chromium-6.0.472.33 and h264

1 I've noticed that ebuilds of chromium at and later than 6.0.472.33 no
2 longer use the system-provided ffmpeg, and seem to lose support for h264
3 videos (test any non-webm, html5 video at youtube; it will never load).
5 I've tried doctoring the ebuild to use the system-provided ffmpeg, which
6 does not fix h264 video and causes crashes on webm videos: probably why
7 we went back to the bundled ffmpeg.
9 Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a straightforward work-around
10 beyond going back to 6.0.472.14ish?
12 Thanks,
14 -Andy
