FFmpeg supporting H.264 and vp9 hardware acceleration in Firefox

Hello. I am filled with joy in completing testing H.264 and vp9 hardware acceleration with FFmpeg and Firefox. This includes a YouTube player script calling ffmpeg and ffplay so able to watch HDR YouTube videos in 10-bits output.

This is not an April Fools joke, but rather a completed effort for running on NVIDIA GPUs. My motivation is simply wanting hardware acceleration in Firefox. Now, the Clear Linux desktop experience is superb and fun.

Well, I made a GitHub repository ffmpeg-on-clear-linux.
