Can't watch mpeg-4 aac h.264 video in Linux Firefox

Updated for Fedora 19 - July 2013

Every new Fedora install, I forget how to watch apple trailers in my browser. I get the mpeg-4 aac and h.264 decoder missing message.

This can be solved in three steps:

1) Add the rpmfusion repository.

su -c 'yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/releases/19/Everything/x86_64/os/rpmfusion-free-release-19-1.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/releases/19/Everything/x86_64/os/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-19-1.noarch.rpm'

2) Install vlc

sudo yum install vlc

3) Lastly this one extra command allowed the movie to play

sudo yum install gstreamer1-libav
