> Yet Mozilla is giving up before collecting the fruit of their previous policy (no system codec).

The bigger issues are that

* Google never followed through on its declaration it would remove H.264 from Chrome, which would have made almost 50% of browsers that don't support H.264.

* Flash never followed through on its declaration it would include WebM, which would have enabled WebM in IE and Safari and made it possible for YouTube to go WebM-only (on desktop).

Mozilla using system H.264 codecs on mobile (not even desktop) doesn't matter at all compared to those.
