With no codec support... what's the point of building Chromium? This

It is not that there is no longer any codec support. The codecs here are
regarding MP4 and H.264. Those will no longer be supported. Other codecs
should still be supported.

I can't pretend to understand the whole legal silliness behind it all,
but... shouldn't "we" be able to use H.264?
