Didn't you read what I just said? The "build dependency" is on the
*source* package, being 'ffmpeg', this builds many binary packages:
ffmpeg, ffmpeg-libs, ffmpeg-devel, ffmpeg-encumbered-codecs. The only
difference between these packages is which files are contained, but
they were all built from the same original source package.

When was H.264 claimed to be public domain? Was there a case in court
to determine that it wasn't? Anyway, nowadays it's clearly not, thus
not distributed in Fedora.
