Package: libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37
Version: 2.26.1-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

apt install surf and libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37 (2.26.1) from experimental:

Using "surf":

surf http://tmp.xaq.nl/test-aac.html

Will only play a few seconds or not at all. The package libwebkit2gtk-4.0-37-gtk2_2.24.0 was the last version that worked well.

MP3 and HLS seem to play as expected, but after playing test-AAC these two will not always play:

surf http://tmp.xaq.nl/test-mp3.html
surf http://tmp.xaq.nl/test-hls.html
