If you use the latest version of firefox , check this link:

It played flawless on my system and I don't remember me having
configured some option/port knob to enable the functionality.

However, there is an ongoing battle regarding which codecs would be
supported. Google/Apple support h264 while Mozilla/Opera prefer/advocate
the Ogg theora one. I think this is a pretty thin picture of the
situation but I guess you can google it around.

So, don't expect all html5/video sites to work.
