That’s when Youtube gives you an HTML5 video. I still have not found out
which callbacks webkit needs for this. It’s already linking in gstreamer
and all kind of video libraries, so I think it should do it on its own.
If anyone knows how to easily turn this on, send me a patch.

You need to compare to chromium to see if it is a bug in surf or not.
Webkit is a beast and surely undebuggable. Have you tried checking out
the webkit repository? I need a whole new SSD harddrive for this.

Thanks for reporting the bugs.
