Dead link. Oops, Opera 10.60 final is out,
and the bug seems fixed, thanks for your attention :-)

This ^^^ one (besides 100's of other fixes) ? Maybe "sound vs nosound
video" rather than "Theora vs VP8/WeBM" issue ...

Nope. Yesterday the link did "play" with Opera, today no longer ("Get
Also appending "&html5=1" or "&webm=1" has no effect. They must have read this
thread and broken the hints given ...
Anyone knows when HTML5 is supposed to be the primary behaviour of
Youtube ? At least they can no longer say "there is no non-beta browser
to view" because there is one: Opera 10.60 :-)
Those 2 ^^^ seem to work in both Firefox and Opera.
Other (less critical) issue unfixed in Opera 10.60:
Playing Theora or WeBM video from local storage doesn't work
(IIRC I had already pointed this). Firefox can play local videos,
also Opera will show local PNG's.
The Opera title page now has a WeBM video ... but doesn't work:
It would be cool to see on the title page of both opera.com and
mozilla.com links to simple test videos (total cca 8):
- Theora and WeBM
- Sound and no sound
- Small (320x240 maybe) and bigger (maybe 800x600)
~~~ wow ~~~
