Fedora generally don't include patented codecs such as h264 as a matter of 
policy. You usually have to go to a non-fedora repo like rpmfusion for those 
codecs. Check which repo your x264 package came from - I bet it's rpmfusion or 
some other repo, not fedora. Blame laws on software patents for this 

The fedora-packaged linphone in F12 is rather old (2.1.1) and doesn't appear 
to have any video codecs installed, probably due to the patent policy. 
Rpmfusion don't appear to have it packaged, so the alternatives are to build 
it yourself or find some other precompiled version.
