I don't know about VLC, I had the impression that the problem is
playing videos in FireFox.

Playing H.264 videos in FireFox for Linux was introduced in version 26
and FireFox's implementation uses gstreamer library so if you want to
watch videos encoded with h.264 in FireFox then you need to have
gstreamerXXX-libav installed.
