Heh ??? Can Opera 10b play Theora at all ? 10a definitely can't,
and I don't see such a fact advertised anywhere on opera.com  :-(
There is a years old experimental version (hacked from cca 9.52)
that can play it  __IF__ doesn't crash just at start ... and unusably
buggy with layout of some pages, so the Opera guys seem not that
enthusiastic about Theora video support ...

Also, FF3.5b4 still (?) supports Theora but on their page you can find
a cool "video challenge" supporting WMV + MPG + MOV only, no
Theora at all :-(

~~~ wow ~~~
