It would cost Redhat a lot of money for the license, which they will not
recoup, because there *is* no desktop market worth mentioning, and most
of what there is would react very badly to being asked to pay for some
particular proprietary media format.

There's a little bit of a chicken and egg problem, here, and it's one
that is best solved by some third party specializing in packaging video
solutions.  (Consider how effective a solution freshrpms.net is.)
