If you try it without the type="video/ogg" does it work?  If so I 
_think_ this is a known bad interaction between the mime type mappings 
of the XiphQT plugin and how WebKit gets its mappings for video 
support.  I believe that it's fixed by hard coding some mime types in 
the WebKit nightlies which means it will likely be fixed in a later 
Safari release.
