I'm not familiar with that distro, but my suggestion would be to install VLC. It has support for many codecs, and is available for most distros.

You're going to show a Fedora user how to enable web-page video playback, using a web-page video? No written instructions? Atleast I can download the ogg.

Yes well.

These *are* video tutorials we're doing, but the irony didn't escape me either. :)

My thoughts were to watch them on a second computer, download the ogg, or something like that. Still, the irony is ripe I'll admit.

Yay!
