Does Wine 6 have Media fundation support?
Part of the Media Foundation has been implemented in Wine.
You can see what is implemented on: https://source.winehq.org/WineAPI/M.html (mfmediaengine, mf, mfplat, mfplay, mfreadwrite)
Do I need to use this (https://github.com/z0z0z/mf-install)?
From the same page:

May 2020 Notice
For many games this script is not needed anymore, and may soon not be needed at all.
This is largely thanks to work Guy1524 has done in officially implementing Media Foundation support into Wine. I would reccommend trying games with latest Proton-GE first, and only using this as a backup.

Anything using CEF3 (Chromium Embedded Framework) will still need these DLLs:

[0925/211336.130:ERROR:dxva_video_decode_accelerator_win.cc(1431)] DXVAVDA fatal error: could not LoadLibrary: msmpeg2vdec.dll: Module not found. (0x7E)
[0925/211336.302:ERROR:dxva_video_decode_accelerator_win.cc(1341)] DXVAVDA fatal error: Could not load msmpeg2vdec.dll: Module not found. (0x7E)

This is a common issue and has been commented on for over three years now. I'm really surprised that winetricks doesn't have all of the DLLs in the MF package.
