Totally agree.
We only use HTML5 and recommend upgrading the web browser.
Also you can decorate your HTML5 player, for example using php and ajax:
http://zenbakaitz.servehttp.com/galere/galere.php (This URL will become
invalid in the near future).
How I can remove the pause in the basic HTML5 player ?. I do not like
the live audio break :))
