I just played an flv file on vlc the other day, don't even remember how I 
ended up with an flv file.. for youtube I copy the FLASH... file from /tmp 
somewhere else and rename it FLASH...mpeg 

asa for h.264 I looked for that package on my system and found these:
# dpkg --list |grep 264
ii  libx264-54                                              
0.svn20070309-4.1etch1               x264 video coding library
rc  libx264-56                                              0.svn20070930-0.0                    
x264 video coding library

ii  libx264-dev                                             
1:0.svn20090115-0.0                  development files for libx264

no clue why I have so many packages!
