I recently got a Kodak zi8 video recorder. It works great in Fedora 12 so I was inspired to create a 15-minute video highlighting five fun things in Fedora 12.

Can you play this video on Fedora 12 without proprietary SW?

Can one play these YouTube videos on a stock Fedora 12 system without installing more non-free software (like Adobe's proprietary Flash player)?

Also, how many of these featured programs can one run without non-free software (like proprietary firmware for one's fancy video card)? I understand that Fedora's Linux kernel comes with non-free firmware, so one might not notice that their fancy hardware works without modification. But doesn't that go against any claim that Fedora is about software freedom?
