Michel, I'm listening audio HTML5 from Radio Galere embedded in:
*** Epiphany 2.30.6 ............... WebKit
*** Chromium 6.0.472.63 (59945) ... WebKit
*** Firefox 23.0 (beta) ........... Gecko
for more than 1 hour without cuts, with the 3 web browsers running on
Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.7 and without extra players.
Voilà !! ... Oui, oui, maintenant je parle un peu le Français :))
