You lucky boy!  ;-)
I still cannot make it work with midori/0.4.3-1 and
libwebkitgtk-1.0-0/1.6.1-5+b1 on an updated Debian testing box.

Please note that I can play HTML5 videos with chromium, as mentioned in
the original bug report.

I am kind of aware of this, but tested with HTML5 videos, such as:
which plays fine with chromium, but fails to start with midori
(it looks as if it were trapped in an endless loop, while waiting to
begin: it only shows the swirling circles, or whatever you want to call
them, and nothing else happens).

Please note that, as I said in the original bug report, I also used the
so-called test-drive suggested by midori FAQ:
It fails with midori, while it works fine with chromium...

I am therefore reopening the bug report.
I hope we can figure out what's wrong...

Thanks for your patience and helpfulness!
