html5 codecs on 1.75

When I go to on a
1.75 with os25 using Firefox on GNOME it says "Your browser can't play
Ogg Theora video. Your browser can't play H.264 video." (see caption
below the image)

However, when I play one of these OGV files directly in Firefox, it
plays both audio and video. These are screencasts for Drupal 6
recorded using gtk-recordmydesktop on a Ubuntu laptop and the codec
info says video is Theora and audio is Vorbis.

Is this something missing on the Firefox end?
