How does one include codecs like h264, mp3, aac etc. In browser Ive used gn flags, but apparently chromiumos doesn't use it. Ive tried using x264 ebuild, as well as setting $USE = chrome_media x264 widevine. I've asked this twice in the chrome media group to no avail.
For example cloudready and arnold the bats chromiumos builds support these codecs, Having them missing breaks video playback on ALOT of sites. Unless it's webm, html5 video, or vp8/vp9  it won't play it.
