Is there any way to get Iron to play H.264/MPEG-4 AVC encoded videos in HTML5 video element on Windows?
For Chromium on Ubuntu there exists an add-on package called 'chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-extra', which enables this functionality. Is there something similar (codec pack or whatever) which enables this functionality on Windows?
